🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: Judges 11.
📚 Why?! Just... Why?! 🤷🏻♂️
(Judges 11:30-31) Jephthah made a vow to the Lord. He said, “If you give me victory over the Ammonites,31 I will give to the Lord whatever comes out of my house to meet me when I return in triumph. I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.”
Observation: As I said in the podcast, the type of home Jephthah lived in likely meant he suspected a household animal would come out the front door. However, if there is even a chance one of your family members will be coming that way, you don't make that vow. I think this shows just how desperate he was. When we get desperate, we usually end up doing desperate things. This is an extremely cautionary tell to be careful what you say. You just might be held accountable for it.
Application: Be careful what type of promises you make. The ones who may have to pay for it are the ones you love the most.
