The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Psalm 15:4 (The righteous man keeps his word even when it pains him. This is certainly true of a righteous God as well. We should imitate Him. See Ephesians 5:1)
Deuteronomy 23:21-23 (It’s not a sin not to promise; it’s only a sin to promise and then not keep the promise. The most fundamental example of this is marriage. That is, you didn’t have to marry your wife, but since you did marry her, you are held responsible for keeping your wedding vows.)
