Debt: A Biblical Perspective #4


image

Not only does the Bible warn us of debt but it provides us of examples. These examples are meant to teach us about issues surrounding debt. Each example is unique and helps us see different aspects of indebtedness. Use this opportunity to reflect on these passage and explore how you would handle each situation these examples present.

Matthew 18:32-33 NKJV – Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me.  Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’

Luke 7:42 NKJV – And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”

Colossians 2:13-14 NKJV – And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

  1. I will remember to be compassionate if a person owes me money and can’t afford to pay me back. At the same time I always try to go by never be a borrower or lender. It’s the best way to lose friends. lol
