All things work together for good is more than a polite saying or wishful thinking, it’s a fact you can take to the bank!
I was recently reminded of this when thinking upon finances. It is extremely easy in this day in age to get credit. It is even easier to spend yourself into a hole that will take a long time to get out. Just look at all the credit counselling services!
But how can good come out of debt? Surely God dislikes indebtedness. He bountifully provides for us, and even had rules on debt for His chosen people. However, He knows that if we had the money, we would be tempted to use it all on ourselves. Debts teach us discipline, as well as provide for greater income when paid off. Could it be that debt teaches us humility in the area of money, and good stewardship when we get out?
Something to chew on…
