Deuteronomy 28:1

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth….”


It is a fearful thing to promise God obedience and break that promise. (The Voice Translation note)


As a mom, the one thing I make sure of, is to never  promise my daughter things in the heat of the moment then not deliver. Yes, I’ve done it and it killed me to see her disappointment and I vowed not to do it again. The look on her face made me wonder how God feels when we make vows we don’t honor. Deuteronomy 28:15-68 is enough of a reminder to consider our words carefully; promises made out of desperation are dangerous.
