Crushing Debt

Sometimes, we hear of people who find themselves in crushing debt and gather their creditors together and say, “If you will just give me time, I will repay everything.”  Occasionally, we hear of honorable men who keep such a promise, even if it takes a lifetime.  Can we make such a promise to God?  No.  God’s command is that we love Him with all of our heart!  Even if we do so today there is no margin to apply to yesterday’s deficit. “We have only done what was required”.  Even at 90% obedience, the crushing debt continues to grow.  The ONLY thing that can ever be done with our debt is to ask God to forgive it.  The wonder of the world is that the God whom we have sinned against is the One who will release us from the burden.  God does not sell, He gives.  Ask! and it shall be given to you.
