No Debt

There is so much in today's news about the economy, financial ruin, debt, and investment loss. The trend of people walking away from their financial responsibilities through bankruptcies is mind boggling. Another problem is that so many people live way beyond their means. I must admit, I have been guilty of using the convenience of credit cards to purchase "wants" when my "needs" are completely met. People who use credit in this manner are always in the hole and can never seem to get their head above water. They are always over extended on credit.

I'm thankful Jesus wiped out any debt I owed when He took on my sin. What about your account? Has your account been cleared or are you still burdened by the sin debt owed? There is no greater feeling than knowing your debt has been paid in full. Would you like to be free and clear of debt? Ask Jesus to erase that debt today, This Day.

Peace and Joy,

Psalm 51:1-4 (NKJV)

1 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.

Wonderful true in this time of both economic struggle as well as spiritual struggle. I believe God is standing there with open arms for some of us that haven't gotten the message yet.

So timely. What is is about humans any way that makes us want to get in debt just to acquire stuff? I'm sure I heard a Bible verse that says that God owns everything and we are here to be stewards.

Have a wonderful weekend!

So true. What a wonderful prayer to God in those verses.

Wonderful post. There is a school of thought that we will come better: more authentic, more thankful for the important things, etc, on the other side of this financial/economic crisis. I hope so.
