VERSE OF THE DAY

MATTHEW 5: 26 (NRSV)

[26] Truly I will tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.

Are you in debt? 

All of us are. If it is not financial obligations, we are in debt to a friend for staying up late talking us through a difficult time. We are in debt to a parent for sacrificing for our benefit. We are in debt to our spouse or best friend for their unconditional support and love. We are all in debt to someone for something.

I know I am often guilty of focusing on my life, my issues, and the timing of my blessings, but God reminded me this morning that first I must pay my debts, and pour back into others what they given me.
