“And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist’s head in a charger. 9And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath’s sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her. 10And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.” Mt. 14:8-10
Imagine what it could be like if Christians were as serious about keeping their oath to serve the Lord as Herod was to keep his oath before men.
