Day 21: What the Bible Says About Debt

Happy Sunday! To close our week on debt, I wanted to share a few verses from the Bible on what it says about debt. It’s pretty clear in God’s word that we are to avoid and pay off our debts. Have a restful and lovely day!

For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.

Deuteronomy 28:12
The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

2 Kings 4:7
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”

Proverbs 22:7
