THE BORROWER’S QUANDARY
The Bible is always right. Proverbs 22:7 (MSG) – “The poor are always ruled over by the rich, so don’t borrow and put yourself under their power.”
The rich do not have automatic control over the poor. Their power is activated when they lend to them. The rich rule over the poor, not because the rich have more money than the poor, but because they keep the poor serving them by lending to them.
The more the rich lend to you, the more you have to run around and serve to pay back, and the more you serve to pay back, the more your mental capacity to think your way out and be free is hindered because you are tired.
You will be free this year. Make up your mind to live within your means, be disciplined with the little resources you have and make plans to pay back what you borrowed as soon as you are able, even if it means denying yourself some luxury.
I have been to training seminars, especially property events, where they tell people to borrow and borrow even more, and to use Other People’s Money (OPM). But that is only for if you know what you are doing. Let me reveal to you a mystery: Many of them are in a serious financial mess and in debt up to their necks. They are merely surviving.
There are goods or services that you can provide which will multiply in your hand, and you will be able to pay your way out of debt. Don’t feel condemned; just discover what it is. God does not rain down money from heaven, and I am convinced God will show you that this year.
