God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

There shall be no more death, no more grief or crying or pain. Rev 21:4

 

Case 1

It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay. Eccl 5:5

I always understood this verse as being between man and God. Only today, I started to believe that it is even worse when it is between man and man.

Why did the bible say so? What is wrong in promising and not keeping the promise? Does it hurt?

Yes, it does. When you promise something or vow to do something. There would be a man, a lady, a kid, a whole family or even a nation, depending on who you are, that will hold onto this promise. Your promise is only a group of words that come out of your lips but to them it could mean life, happiness, dignity… etc.

If you are keen to keep your promise they can be very happy. But if you don’t!!! You are hurting badly.

Let me add, if this promise comes from someone in a higher rank, i.e. from a parent or a teacher to a child or from a priest to one of his congregation …etc. it hurts even more.

So please do not promise unless you are 100% sure that you are doing what you promised. If you are not sure you would be able to do what you wish to do, DO NOT UTTER A WORD.

This is not my advice but God’s. So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. Mt 7:12
