Today we’re talking about a four-letter word every one of us has thought about, and perhaps some of you are more worried about it in your own life. Our topic is DEBT. We’re looking at it on a national scale as well as from a personal perspective, and bringing it down to our kitchen table today. We bring it up not to monger fear, but to see what the Bible has to say about where we are headed and how Christians can prepare our hearts for what will one day happen.
Our verse today is from Matthew 6:19-24:
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light,but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. (ESV)
