Jephthah Sacrifices Daughter to Fulfill Vow      

Judges 11:34-40 NRSV

When he saw her, he tore his clothes, and said, “Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low; you have become the cause of great trouble to me. For I have opened my mouth to the Lord, and I cannot take back my vow.” (Judges 11:35)

Sometimes we make promises that perhaps are not ours to make. Pray to God for wisdom in promise making and for faithfulness in keeping your promises to God and others.
