Avoid Voluntary Servitude
The “borrower is a slave to the lender.”
Many people voluntarily embrace financial servitude by increasing their standard of living using debt. Then debt consumes their thoughts. They worry about paying it off and stress themselves trying to make ends meet. Some experience shame from hiding it. The deeper the debt, the more like a servant they become.
Avoid this pain by remembering that debt should never be normal for God’s people. Our founder, Larry Burkett said, “Financial bondage is a state of being captivated or overwhelmed by money matters…it’s a natural consequence of misusing the resources that God has entrusted to us.”
