day no. 13,979: a crass course in commitments

Proverbs 20:25
It is a snare to say rashly, “It is holy,”
and to reflect only after making vows.

It is important to make vows and to commit to people, but it is important to consider wisely to whom you commit yourself.
This applies to marriage as much as it does to ministry.
1 Timothy 5:22
Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor take part in the sins of others; keep yourself pure.
It is crucial that you consider the content of your covenants and the people to whom you promise them.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-5
4 When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow. 5 It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.
