Pastor Bo: A vow is a promise that should be kept

An unusual exchange recently took place at a local business, and it still has me a bit shaken as I consider it. An employee received her paycheck, and immediately realized something was drastically wrong. She had worked a full 40 hours at her very difficult job, a job for which she has been promised $20 per hour. But when she received her paycheck she realized that she had instead been paid $2 per hour.

Naturally, she was upset. She went to her boss to get the problem corrected, since she had children at home needing to be fed, a power bill that needed to be paid and a roof that needed to be kept overhead. When she spoke to him, though, things did not go at all as she expected.
