Promises are sacred things never to be broken. Remember when we were little how we did "pinkie promises" with our friends. We tend to take promises very seriously and are terribly hurt when a friend breaks a promise made to us. The greatest promise ever made was the one that God made to us when He promised that He would make a new Covenant with us- an agreement, a sacred bond- that He would always be our God and that we would be His people forever. He told us that the sign of that Covenant would be a rainbow of colors. So, whenever you see a rainbow in the sky, God is renewing His Covenant-His promise to always belong to us. Remember to say "thank you" when you see a rainbow!
