Deuteronomy 23:21-23 – When thou shalt vow a vow unto the Lord thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the Lord thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee. But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee. That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the Lord thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth.
Meditation – Keep your promise. We must be willing to make good on our vows. Words mean nothing if we never show proof. We Make believers of people when our word is kept; We cause friction and strife when it isn’t. A vow made is a service owed. In this, it is essential that we count every cost before making a commitment. It is better to not make a vow than to make one and default on it. We should never make promises we are unwilling or unable to keep. He’s kept His promise to us. We need to do the same.
Better is it – Ecclesiastes 5:5
