Proverbs 22: 7
The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
I hope the illustration speaks for today’s Proverb. It is so common today to be in debt. Many years ago the rich as royalty used to own everything. Including the people. At a point not too long ago the people revolted in many area’s to free themselves from the bondage. The rich had to come up with something to get the people back in bondage. Debt was the answer. Let us use greed to get them to enslave themselves. Let us show them nice things that they will want. Let us offer them money that they can pay back with interest so that we can suck the life out of them. Not only that we will use their other down fall. Sympathy. We will get them to agree to taxes and claim it will make their life better. We will then use that tax money to make the riches life better. They want your life. They want your money. They want your freedom. In rich’s (royalty) mind they own this anyway. They just got to get you to give it up willingly.
So many have given up their freedom. In the past I have given mine up also. I started a while ago to get out of debt. It is not easy. You must dig down deep and do it. Don’t fall for their trap any longer.
For yourself, for your family, for your descendants. Get out of debt. Teach your children to stay out of debt.
