The Bible is the ultimate lesson giver. This is certainly true in the story about Jephthahâs tragic mistake, which confirms Robert Serviceâs truth: A promise made is a debt unpaid.
In Robert Serviceâs poem, âThe Cremation Of Sam McGee,â one line reads, âA promise made is a debt unpaid,â which reminds me of a story told to me by my boyhood best friend and mentor, Jaybird, by far the best storyteller I have ever known.
The old black man had a powerful memory, and never forgot any of the Biblical tales read to him by his children or me, and loved retelling them in his own words.
How about Bill Clinton? He’s made a career out of being a fabulist and a hypocrite, and the lamestream media love him for it.
