We are to live our lives owing no man nothing. But, that is highly unlikely today. It is very rare that you run across someone that is debt-free.
We want this, we want that, not caring about the consequences of our spending habits. We just want! Which is where all the debt occurred.
But when we borrow, we are to pay back that which we have borrowed. Please note, the person you borrowed from, you have now become their servant. As long as you owe someone money, you are their servant. God’s word said it, I didn’t.
And when we lend, we will bug someone to know end, to get back that which we have loan. But, God’s word say, we shouldn’t expect it back (other than a lending institution) and our reward will be great.
So, when you borrow pay back your debt. And when you lend, don’t expect it back, so that you can receive your reward from our Father.
Romans 13:8 (KJV) – owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
Proverbs 22:7 (KJV ) – the rich ruleth over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Luke 6:35 (KJV) – but love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
