Get Out of Debt and Give

Getting out of debt grants freedom to be more generous.

Determine the first debt you want to pay off. Choose one with high-interest or the one that troubles you the most. Next, select a realistic date to pay it off and share your desire with someone who will hold you accountable. Adjust your lifestyle and eliminate nonessential spending.

Track your repayment by putting marbles in a jar, or using a countdown paper chain, or posting notes on a wall to stay encouraged! I frequently hear stories of how God shortened the time people thought that it would take to eliminate all their debt. Now, commit your plan to the Lord and honor Him by always giving first.
