We learn much about misguided faith and a skewed view of God from reading the story of Jephthah, who made a foolish vow to God and murdered his only daughter.

Scripture: Judges 11:3-30
Vows originate with man, and we are wise to fulfill them promptly. Covenants begin with God. These are mutual agreements of solemn and binding force between two parties. Don't make a hasty vow to God. Enter into a relationship with Him through a covenant. Vows and covenants throughout the Bible are extensively discussed.
