21If you make a vow to the Lord your God, do not be slow to pay it, for the Lord your God will certainly demand it of you and you will be guilty of sin. 22But if you refrain from making a vow, you will not be guilty. 23Whatever your lips utter you must be sure to do, because you made your vow freely to the Lord your God with your own mouth.  (Deuteronomy 23:21-23, NIV)

Promises to the Lord are not to be made lightly. Promises to the Lord are binding. There is wisdom in refrained from making a promise that you cannot keep. When was the last time you made a promise - to the Lord and/or to another person? Did you keep your word? Did you need reminding and prompting? Is there a promise you need to keep now?
