THE BIBLE ON DEBT: The Bible never describes taking on debt as a sin. However, Proverbs 22:7 warns that debt can enslave us: “The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Becoming enslaved to debt is contrary to how Jesus desires for us to live. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). The Apostle Paul reminds us of the sacrifice Jesus made so we could experience such a life: “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings” (1 Corinthians 7:23). Financially, a crucial aspect of experiencing life “to the full” is living free from the bondage of debt.

 

UNCOMMON SUCCESS: Living with debt is so prevalent in our culture, it can feel normal — even unavoidable. But it isn’t the standard to which God’s word encourages us to aspire. Becoming free from the bondage of debt is an essential aspect of living “life to the full.” Having no debt frees us from stress that can hinder our most valued relationships, and it enables us to more clearly hear and respond to God’s call on our lives.
