Topic: it’s Really About Integrity

Bible Reading: – Leviticus 27:1-24

We said a few days ago that there are broadly two kinds of vows. Today we examine vows of dedication, where some person or thing was pledged to the Lord. God laid out the details of the consideration for such vows, because He knows they carry far-reaching implications, the book of Proverbs 20:25 points out the evil of making a vow rashly and then reconsidering it. God takes vows seriously and requires that they be carried out.

We often have good intentions when making a vow- we want to show God that we are determined to please Him. Jesus, however, says it is better not to make promises to God because He knows how difficult they are to keep {Matt. 5:33 & 37}. If you still feel it is important to make a vow, make sure that you weigh the consequences of breaking that vow. We have already read the story of Jephthah. It is better not to make promises than to make them and then later want to change them. It is better still to count the cost beforehand and then fulfill them.

Keeping oaths and promises build trust and makes committed human relationships possible. The Bible condemns making vows or taking oaths casually, giving your word while knowing that you won’t keep it, or swearing falsely in God’s name. Oaths are needed in certain situations only because we live in a sinful society that breeds distrust.

“It is a snare for a man to devote something rashly as holy, and afterward to reconsider his vows” {Proverbs 20: 24}.

THOUGHT: To strengthen your promise with a vow shows that something is wrong.
