Mean what you say, say what you mean

What we say ought to be enough so that we should not have to add an oath, as James said,

“But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No,’ lest you fall into judgment” (James 5:12).

If you have to back up your word with an oath, then if you fail to do as you promised, you shall fall into judgment. Therefore, only speak what you mean, and mean what you speak, then do what you have stated.
It only needs to be that simple.
