Have you ever been promised something only to be let down? It hurts everytime. Breaking a promise is the same as lying. You feel betrayed. You feel lied to. Broken promises can lead already broken hearts astray.
If you make a promise, knowing full well that you aren’t going to keep it, then you are better off not making the promise. Easy fix. You won’t let anyone down, because they were not expecting anything.
This goes with God as well. We are to keep the things we promise to God. Do not promise God anything that you do not plan on doing. Then you don’t have to ever worry about breaking it.
When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it.Ecclesiastes 5:4-5
