    live into the commitment?

    Please have a look at this paragraph:

    "I encourage people to choose or decline the shared vision. my invitation implies a promise. If they accept the invitation, i am extending a commitment to support them. That means I assist them, even if their way of living the vision is very different from mine. To maintain my integrity, I have to live into the commitment extended through the offer, just as they have to live into their commitment for the vision."

    Live into the commitment extended through the offer?
    Live into their commitment for the vision?
    What's the narrator talking about?

    I have no idea, but I'm pretty sure he's trying to sell you something.

    I am not sure what this is about either, but I think we would say we live UP to a commitment. The preson speaking here is offering his commitment and promises to follow through on it. He will support you no matter what and will help you carry it out ...whatever it is...
