Never Make A Promise I Can't Keep

Dru Hill the legendary R&B/Pop group made this song famous  in 1997.  The claim that the song made was that the person would never make a promise that the person couldn't keep. This is a very admirable claim to make. Unfortunately we have all made promises that we have failed to keep in fact most relationships end because of broken promises.  Whether it is a sexual, church, or business relationship failure to keep one's word is a sure fire way to end a relationship.  Numbers 30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceeded out of his mouth.   Even though we live in a world where one's word does mean much anymore our WORDS are important to God.  In fact the Bible says that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 

So be careful of the promises you make because God is holding you responsible.  So never make a promise that you can't keep.

Scripture Reference:  Numbers 30:2, Matthew 12:36
