This week we celebrated Memorial Day commemorating those who have given their lives for liberty. It is altogether right to honor these brave soldiers.
In the Bible book of Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 we find these words, "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. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay."
