16 Sep 2021: DON’T BORROW MONEY TO BUY CONSUMABLES – 2 Kings 4:1, Proverbs 22:7

Story Highlights
  • Everyone that tells you to take goods and pay later is an enemy of your financial future.
  • If you are going to survive and enter into a serious wealth flow, you must not borrow money to buy consumables.
  • Any consumable that you can't handle by cash, postpone it and do without it.
  • When you buy things on credit, it destroys your ability to practice the law of budgeting and planning.

If you are going to survive and enter into a serious wealth flow, you must not borrow money to buy consumables. Don’t borrow money to eat and don’t borrow money to buy clothes. If you have to borrow money, let it be to do something tangible and cogent; like buying land, making an investment, building a house or payment of your child’s tuition. Don’t borrow money to buy clothes for a wedding.

Everyone that tells you to take goods and pay later is an enemy of your financial future. They are causing you to live at cost and expense beyond your income. Some smart business women go to offices when they have just received a consignment from Dubai, Thailand, or Japan. They know how to feed on the lust in people, dropping materials for them and telling them to pay the following month. You may think it is a blessing to have such a friend, but you are in jail already.

Any consumable that you can’t handle by cash, postpone it and do without it. If you miss one lunch and go hungry, don’t go and sleep; go and think or pray. Out of that prayer, you can find a solution to why you are hungry. Don’t go and borrow money to eat food. Because after you have gotten money, you’ll still have to pay it back. When you buy things on credit, it destroys your ability to practice the law of budgeting and planning. It steals initiative from you.

PRAYER: Father, deliver me from pulls to emotional and foolish expenses. Help me to differentiate between cogent expenses and tangible expenses in Jesus’ name.
