‘Till Debt Do Us Part is not just a clever title it is an ever present threat to American families. Just last week I heard a report that American families carry over $12 Trillion in personal debt. Presidential elections often include National Debt as a fighting point. It seems like they learned it from our families.
It seems like the Purpose Driven Life has given way to the Purchase Driven Life and the American Dream has become a nightmare for too many. God’s Word is a light unto our financial path. Biblical strategies and principles can help create families that are blessed financially instead of being stressed financially. If you missed this week’s message on busting debt and building financial security, you can hear it on online at our church website www.jibcfamily.com
We are blessed to be a blessing. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to live graciously and give generously if we are captive to financial debt. There is help and you can get out of debt. Remember the blessing of our Lord Jesus who said “Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15. Debt is not so much a matter of having possessions as it is being possessed by your possessions. Finances are a matter of discipleship and spiritual maturity. Proverbs 11:24-25 says “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be blessed.” Be blessed!
