Money, Work, and Debt
“The Bible tells us that debt creates bondage. Proverbs 22:7 says, ‘The wealthy rule over the poor; a borrow is a slave to a lender.’ The problem with any debt in our lives, including the mortgage, is that it means when I go to work tomorrow I am paying for the past instead of investing in the future. The borrower is a slave to the lender.” From shiny gods: finding freedom from things that distract us by Mike Slaughter.
