DO You Honor Promises?
He was a very poor pauper who lived in the village. The only good thing about him was that he was very prayerful and God listened and answered his prayers. He earnestly prayed to God to bless him with a goat and promised to give it to the church when they were inaugurating the house of God. In other words he wanted to dedicate the goat to God. God was very faithful to him and gave him a big billy-goat. It happened when the time for inaugurating the church reached the man had grown so fond of the goat that he never gave it to the church. Days went by and the man soon forgot that he had dedicated the goat to the church. Since the vow was just made by the man and nobody knew he had promised to give it to God, there was nobody who asked him about the goat. One day as he grazed the goat he fell asleep under a tree and was dozing on and off bending over and rising again. He was in a sitting position. The goat came near and thought the man was challenging it for a fight. It went backwards and hit the man very hard on the head. He died instantly.
