Scripture:   Joshua 9:18  But the Israelites did not attack them, because the leaders of the assembly had sworn an oath to them by the Lord, the God of Israel.  The whole assembly grumbled against the leaders

19  but all the leaders answered, “We have given their our oath by the Lord, the God of Israel, and we cannot touch them now. 

Observation:   The leaders had foolishly entered into a treaty with the Gibeonites.  When the Gibeonite’s deception was discovered, the leaders did not compound their sin by breaking their word.   The Israelites could have made an excuse that they had been tricked, but they were not living by the standard of the Gibeonites, but by God’s standard!  Years later when Saul killed some of the Gibeonites, God held Israel accountable.

What a strong warning this is for those who would come before the Lord solemnly promising to remain true "till death do us part."  It is also a warning for those who enter into financial agreements.  God holds us accountable for our word, even that which is given foolishly. 

Application:   Ed Cole taught that our word is our bond.  When I give my word, people should be able to depend on me keeping my word.     

Prayer:   Lord, you are the perfect promise keeper ever.  Make me more like you!      Amen
