“It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.”
Do we take the things of God and use them for our own gain?
Do we rashly make a promise without much thought or prayer?
Both of these situations bring a snare, or injury, upon our lives.
Holiness instead of haughtiness.
“Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.”
God is Holy, and we must worship Him for His holiness. He desires for us to become holy, for He is Holy. There is no pride within Him, therefore we must remove the pride for our lives.
“Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.”
Humility instead of haste.
Impatience will get us nowhere. God sometimes chooses to make us wait to see how we will react. If we cannot wait while having faith in His timing, can He trust us with what we are waiting for? Wait in faith with a humble heart that He knows what and when is best.
“Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
Honesty instead of humiliation.
We must keep our word to God; when we vow to do something for Him, we must not neglect our promise. Be cautious before making any vow that you have no true intention of keeping.
“When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.”
“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”
Exodus 25-26 | Matthew 17 | Proverbs 7
