Running into debts

 

 

Brothers, the Scripture says: “Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge, one of those who is surety for debts; if you have nothing with which to pay, why should he take away your bed from under you?” (Proverbs 22:26-27 - NKJV), and also: “Owe no one anything except to love one another ….” (Romans 13:8 - NKJV) and again: “The borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverbs 22:7 – NKJV).

Therefore, I exhort you not to run into debts. If you have the money with which to pay you can buy what you intend to buy, but if you don’t have enough money do not buy it, otherwise you will become a servant of those who lend you the money and you will lose your peace. The grieves, the anxieties and the troubles of those who run into debts are many; talk with those who have run into debts and you will realize what I am saying. Be wise, for the sake of your soul.
