“Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.”
Throughout the book of Proverbs, it tells us many times that we should not be in debt. Todays, proverb is telling us that if we find ourselves in debt that we should do whatever is possible to get out of debt. We should make ourselves miserable until we shed the chains of debt. I have a family to think of so I have to keep them in mind when getting out of debt. You want your spouse to be happy and you want your children to be happy and healthy also. If you don’t have them on board, you may find yourselves in a different kind of debt called divorce. You may say well I can’t get my spouse to curve their spending. You must ask yourself, “Am I curving my spending”? Start with yourself and do what you can to get out of the chains of debt that bind you to this evil world that we live in. Use constant very gentle pressure on the others. Show that you can do it and hopefully it will change them for the better.
