Money Saving Quick Tip

The Debt Myth

Debt is seductive. It lures you in with promises - buy now, pay later. No money down. Interest free for 12 months. However, the lie is soon exposed, and you're left with less money than ever. What appeared to be an affordable purchase quickly increases in price. Interest compounds, over the limit fees or late fees are attached, and before long you owe far more than the original amount you borrowed.

We are a generation of borrowers - our economy has been dependent on the idea of buy now, pay later for quite some time. However, the effects of this lifestyle are becoming more and more obvious. Banks are collapsing, businesses are going bankrupt, and families are unable to pay for basic needs like housing and food.

Perhaps our grandparents and great grandparents had the right idea - save up for large purchases in cash. If your grandfather wanted a car, chances are he didn't finance it. Instead, he worked hard, saved up the money, and paid for it in full at the time of purchase. By applying these simple guidelines to major purchases, you can avoid the debt trap and end up only paying for the purchase itself - avoiding finance charges, late charges, bank fees, and over the limit fees.

All things exist through His grace, and therefore in truth, the wealth that you have, you keep only as a steward upon his behalf. When a Christian chooses not to tithe and give offerings, he is in fact stealing from God.
