In Genesis 47 verse 30, it says
“… so Joseph promised, I will do as you ask.”
Let us remember that any promise, big or small is a sworn oath that should never be taken for granted. It may consume time to accomplish or even just a fleeting second to handle; but we have to just DO it when we avow to do so.
Honor complements the promise we speak. So our careful faithfulness to our word is a trustworthy testament of who we are. May we who pledge a vow will always be cautious to uphold it as long as we breathe life. For our God will take pleasure in our fortitude to give HIM back the glory when a vow is spoken and accomplished by the Lord’s grace.
