When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow.” (Ecclesiastes 5:4 NIV)

According to the Center for Disease Control, divorces surpassed the 50% mark of marriages last year. As I performed a wedding last week for a family member, I’m reminded of how sacred our vows are to God, more so than they are to ourselves. While I’m pretty confident in their marital future, there are plenty I’m not so sure of.

Consider for a moment your REAL track record for keeping your promises. How many times to we make pledges and promises? Are we faithful to fulfill them? Do people know you as a person of your word, even if it hurts? Does God see you that way? It’s hard to judge ourselves, but if we don’t keep our word, the only person we fool is ourselves.

Be a person of your word. When you make a vow to God or before Him to others, always live up to it. The remainder of blessing for your life hinges upon your faithfulness. Live up to your end of the bargain with everyone! You are loved today!
