Scripture to Memorize:
Proverbs 31:20-21 “She strectcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet.”
Debt reduction is the topic for today. In the Bible, I have seen where it says, “who ever we are in debt to we are enslaved to.“ (I could not find this passage this morning could anyone help me here?) This is powerful motivation to be debt free. To eliminate debt we start by paying off the smallest first and keep plugging way from there. (See Dave Ramsey’s book “The Total Money Makeover”) Debt is easy to accumulate and difficult to discipline out of. We live in a society of instant gratification. Paying down debt is prolonged gratification. It is kind of like eating the cake before the frosting.
Romans 13:7-8 “Render therefore to all their dues; tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.
Owe no man anything, but to love one another; for he that loveth hath fulfilled the law.”
Be fit and be blessed,
