Living Debt Free – Almost

April 16, 2018

Debt seems to be a common issue. Whether on the national or personal issue, we all carry some amount of financial debt. And credit card companies seem to think we need more – at least that’s why my mailbox tells me.

To get out from under debt brings a sense of relief. Paying off a student loan that’s been dragging out, or finally making that last car payment frees up funds and removes a burden.

The Bible talks a lot about money and debt. Books have been written about applying biblical principles to finances. Here’s a simple passage that teaches us about the proper kind of debt:

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:8ESV

The only debt we should have is to love others. What does that mean?

When you have a loan at the bank, you have to make regular payments. If you owe love to others, then you have to be loving on a regular basis. Not just Valentines Day or Mother’s Day.

Eventually, the loan at the bank will be paid off. But we must always be in debt to love others. There will always be someone to love and we will always have love to give.

How can you demonstrate your love-debt today?
