Romans 13:8: Keep out of debt

Romans_13-8

During these perilous times of increasing financial distress and utter economic upheaval, a word to the wise is “get out of debt” and “keep out of debt.” Jerrold Mundis shares principles that teach How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt, and Live Prosperously.

The Verse of the Day for April 16, 2014 also offers a sure-fire strategy to get out of debt. The Amplified Bible provides this exhortation which is a restatement of Romans 13:8:

Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].

In reflecting on that verse, we also recognize “The first and great commandment: To love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.” Believers are further instructed to “love your neighbor as yourself.” When we love God, first of all, and then love others to the same degree that we love ourselves, we fulfill the law of love which is the highest expression of God, who is love.

Lamar Campbell and Praise express the essence of the Verse of the Day in song with “This Debt of Love I Owe.”
