“Owe nothing to anyone except to love and seek the best for one another; for he who [unselfishly] loves his neighbor has fulfilled the [essence of the] law [relating to one’s fellowman]” Romans 13:8, Amplified.
I have a debt that I’ve had for a long time. I see some progress, but I still have a long way to go. It’s something how, although I created this debt years ago, I’m still having to make financial decisions, right now decisions, factoring this debt in mind.
Debt is a bind to a past monetary decision that can keep us from making future ones. It ties us financially to something then, keeping us from doing something financially now. As men, it feels good when we can do what we want, when we want, for our family. God desires that you have that freedom. God desires that you are free spiritually as well as financially.
Make it your goal to move towards debt freedom, even if it takes time. It will free your money up to be used at any given moment to love people with it and do good as well. Let love be your only debt.
Prayer: Father, I thank You for Your word. Your desire is for me to owe no man but love. Help me be vigilant about being financially free, even if it takes some time. Refresh me to stick with it. I may not be there yet, but I thank You, and I declare that I’m debt-free. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
