Making a vow – ๐Ÿ“… Daily Bible Reading

Today’s reading: Numbers 30:2

Making a vow

We read in Numbers 30:2:

2 If a man makes a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath to bind himself by some agreement, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

Making a vow to the Eternal should not be taken lightly. Yahweh commanded the Israelites to be careful in making vows, promises, and oaths. If ever they make a vow, they must fulfill it.

Sadly, a lot of people donโ€™t seriously keep their words. They make promises but never fulfill them. While some people have gotten used to broken promises, for God it is a sin.

In Matthew 5:37, we read the words of the Messiah:

37 But let your โ€˜Yesโ€™ be โ€˜Yes,โ€™ and your โ€˜No,โ€™ โ€˜No.โ€™ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

We need to live a life of integrity.

It should define who we are. When people think about us, they think of a person who keeps his/her words.

Itโ€™s sad when no one takes you seriously anymore because of the many words you havenโ€™t kept.

If we are to become true believers of the Almighty, we should and must keep our words.

It is better not to make vows than make a vow and then break it.
