Debt: A Biblical Exploration – Part 2 of 5


When we go into debt we are subject to the decision of those who we borrowed from. Whether be financial institutions or people who lent the money, we quickly find ourselves losing things we hold dearly due to our inability to manage our finances. Not only do we become slaves to our debt, but we find our selves also in a servitude to the wills and desires of our creditors. God teaches us to that he has blessed us and has given us everything we could possibly need to live a debt free life.

2 Kings 4:1 NKJV – A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lord . And the creditor is coming to take my two sons to be his slaves.”

Nehemiah 5:3 NKJV – There were also some who said, “We have mortgaged our lands and vineyards and houses, that we might buy grain because of the famine.”

Psalm 109:11 NKJV – Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder his labor.

Isaiah 50:1 NKJV – Thus says the Lord : “Where is  the certificate of your mother’s divorce, Whom I have put away? Or which of My creditors is  it to whom I have sold you? For your iniquities you have sold yourselves, And for your transgressions your mother has been put away.

Deuteronomy 28:44 NKJV – He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

Deuteronomy 28:12 NKJV – The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
