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.
