Luke 14:28 says “For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
We know that our country is I debt. But, what about our own homes? Are we in debt when it comes to our financial matters? We enjoy the little trinkets and glitter of things that we could care less if we can afford it or not. And if our bank account says no, then we will use credit because we desire to have these monument items.
One of the stories I love about debt is found in Matthew 18:32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. In this story the person who owed so much debt ended up getting all his debt cleared, which meant he owed no one and he could start all over with a clean slate.
It is nice when a person can look at their credit report and see that they do not owe any man. Sadly, that is not true for everyone. It is never too late to clean up your credit report. You might be in debt, but you do not have to stay in debt. For that is not God’s Will for your life. Start today by sitting down with the family and writing out who you owe and start calling those creditors and set up arrangements so you can get you and your family out of debt.
Jesus never said His children are to be in debt or owe any man, but because we ourselves did not count the cost of things we find ourselves in debt. Be free today and owe no man. AMEN!
