Debt Mortgages your Future

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear the unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go. . .*
What are your dreams? What are your hopes? What are
your aspirations? Are you able to look through today
and dream about tomorrow or are anxiety and worry about
your finances blocking your vision for the future?
Is your vision for tomorrow clouded by the debt of
yesterday? Is there too much month left at the end of
If you have answered yes to any of these questions,
then maybe you have mortgaged your future.
To mortgage your future means to limit your future
choices. The Bible says, “The rich rule over the
poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”
(Prov. 22:17 NIV) To mortgage your future means that
you set yourself up for a lifetime of servitude to your
lender. For example—being in debt bondage makes
it harder to buy a house, start a business or devote
yourself to kingdom service. That, in turn limits what
God can do through you. Debt may also lower your standard
of living and cause stress in your marriage. Debt also
ties up your money and also obligates you to make payments
from money not yet earned.
Would you like to be free of debt bondage? Would you
like to be free to make choices about your future?
