Christian Counseling Debt and The Bible

“Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.” Matthew 18:27

Is debt biblical? It is not a sin to be in debt but the Bible does speak a lot about being good stewards of what we have been blessed with. The greater sin is being too proud to acknowledge your need and your current financial state and look for help or advice. There are Christian counseling debt centers to help with Christian debt elimination. The sooner help is sought the sooner bills and debts can be controlled and brought under restraint. It is a humbling ordeal to go through, but others share this same experience. We gain from our trials] to better wait on the Lord and to strengthen our faith. If you have a financial problem do not hesitate to look for Christian debt counsel because someday you may be able give spiritual or financial help to a fellow Christian, family member or co-worker.

“Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.” Proverbs 22:7

We are called to spend wisely. Often times we find ourselves in debt for very good reasons. There could be an illness, rendering you unable to work. In these precarious times, we are seeing more and more people being laid off or hours cut substantially. There are regular monthly payments that are due and we may find we do not enough to pay them. Sometimes credit cards are used to pay bills and the debt begins to build. It can become overwhelming and a Christian debt elimination service may be needed.

Pray First

“Listen to me!, you can pray for anything, and if you believe, you will have it.” Mark 11:24

Take everything to the Lord in prayer. Does this denote everything you pray for will be granted? The Lord always answers our prayers, but maybe not in the way we expect or in the same time frame we expect. Jesus prayed when He was on earth. He prayed while in the desert as well as in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus prayedif it is possible may this cup be taken from me.. He still had to go through what He was sent to do, die for our sins and transgressions. We may still have to prevail some trials for the situation we are in, but He has promised to take care of us.
