Living An Abundant Life . . . Be Debt-Free

He who works his land will have abundant food . . . “ Proverbs 12:11

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.” (Prov. 26:2).

Whatever you send into the Universe comes back. To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

You’ll reap whatever you sow. Say good things to everyone; treat everyone with total respect and it will all come back. Never worry about what you are going to get, just concentrate on what you can give.

Understanding the Natural Law of Cause & Effect & obeying it will ensure financial freedom & avoid the pitfalls of financial ruin. It’s so simple & yet so difficult.

Most people live their entire existence completely unaware of why things either “go right” or “go wrong.” They seem unable to grasp that what they do, or do not do, has a direct effect on their lives. Most do not recognise that for every cause there is an effect – or, conversely, for every effect there is a cause. Nor do they know that this is a law. Scientists recognise this in physics, but society is unaware that the same is true in life – that the law of cause and effect is no less immutable than any law of science.

The Bible, God’s Instruction Manual for mankind, contains many practical, helpful points about finances. God created laws to govern every aspect of His Creation, but most do not understand that these laws therefore govern every action in life. The law of cause and effect – where actions always bring reactions – applies to finances. There is a way – a direct path – to financial freedom.

Realise that God will not force anyone to follow His ways. Yet obeying Him leads to blessings and happiness – disobedience leads to misery and unhappiness.

Impulsive spending is the by-product of a generation lacking in strength and character and is the cause behind why so many are now buried under a mountain of debt. You can’t spend money which you don’t have nor can you go on spending as though there’s no tomorrow. Payments of debts are inevitable.

Using credit to purchase luxury items and a near-universal obsession to obtain material goods fuel the mounting crisis. The present generation is very different from those of the past. Many, in fact most, now live solely for pleasure, comfort, gain and entertainment. Personal responsibility and character-building have almost disappeared.

You do not have to become another statistic in the global financial meltdown. Choose to follow God’s fiscal laws and take the first steps to living an abundant, debt-free life!

Jesus explained in John 10:1, “ . . . I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” AMEN.

Let’s not be impulsive or obsessive

Nor be greedy & possessive

Restraint & abstain

For a life without pain.

Abundant Life does not mean having the Fed Reserve

either keep on printing more money or creating it out of thin air!


Practical Advice:

Live at least 3 years below your budget in case of emergency.

Be FREE of your  house mortgage, car payments & credit card debts.

    I am amazed at your wealth of knowledge and acumen in preparing your blogs. You have indeed an encyclopedic mind or are a walking encyclopedia (with a slight limp!)

    Keep up the good work.
