Judges 11 introduces us to a Bible Character — Jephthah. I first heard about him as a man who made a vow to God, the vow went awry, but he went ahead to fulfil his vows. That is the story I was told in Sunday school as a child. I have not bothered about him …

The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. Proverbs 11: 3 (NIV) Integrity is like the foundation of a great building.
