A Painful Pledge 
by Rick Boxx
July 9, 2010

Years ago, I made a pledge to a capital campaign. Since I hate commitments, and I couldn't find "maybe" on the pledge card, I wrote in my pledge amount and "if the Lord willing" next to it.

The campaign is drawing to a close and I still have part of that pledge unpaid. My flesh wanted to say, "I guess the Lord wasn't willing." Then I read Numbers 30:2.

It says, "If a man makes a vow to the Lord, or takes an oath to bind himself with a binding obligation, he shall not violate his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth."

I will be writing a check today to finish that pledge. Do you have any outstanding promises you need to honor?
