Promises - must be kept

A promise is like a signature; it binds you until you have fulfilled what you promised. And not just the promises you made before heaven; even the ones you make down here to human beings must be kept. If you leave this world without having had time to achieve what you committed to, you will have to come back to keep your promise. Not even God himself will release you from this promise; only the person to whom you made it can do so. A man promises a woman that he will marry her... He may find out one day that he's not cut out for marriage but rather for serving the Lord. Well, he must get the woman to agree to release him from his promise, and if she refuses there is no point in his turning to the Lord, for he will answer, 'Since you promised, I can do nothing. I know you wish to serve me, but you have plenty of time. First get married. You can also serve me while you are married.'
