The rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower is servant to the lender.
There are few people who would say they want to be poor, but isn’t it amazing how often we make decisions that lead us to poverty. King Solomon writes, “Those who borrow are slaves to moneylenders” (CEV).
Our society functions off of a system of debt. Most people live off of what they can afford each month and have chosen a life of slavery to interest payments. It’s not my purpose here to go into a class on financial wisdom or good debt verses bad debt but we must pay heed to God’s word. It has a lot to say about finances.
I am so glad we serve a God who cares about how we spend our money. Lord, help us to please you!
