Be careful of Your Stubborn Heart

Reading in Judges 11.35 this morning where Jepthah says that he cannot take back his vow “For I have opened my mouth to the Lord and I cannot take back my vow.” According to Lev 5.4-6, he certainly could have confessed his rash vow.

One can only conclude that he was either 1. Ignorant of this possibility, or 2. Too stubborn to confess that his vow was rash. I am inclined to think it was number 2.

This is an incredible level of stubborness, and a lesson for our own lives. How many times have I been too stubborn to confess a sin? Answer: Many. Beware oh hard-hearted one, lest you end up like Jepthah.
