In 1 Sam 15:22 it says "Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams." In those times sacrifice was part of religion as a worship to God, but many did not carry a heart of obedience and true worship. So they just offered sacrifices as an outward appearance. So in ecclesiastes Solomon warns us not to do the same. Also in the chapter it speaks about keeping your vows. God takes our words and vows seriously, so do not take it lightly as he holds them accountable to us.
