Out of desperation, we make promises to God.
You’re a fool if you don’t keep them.
Don’t make any promises, you can’t keep.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 (KJV) – when thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldst not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.
