In this episode:
In the all about me world we live in the idea of contentment is fading fast.
Everywhere you look people are drowning in debt and often find themselves stuck because of bad financial decisions. In this Spiritual Kick Off Chris unpacks a popular verse in Proverbs that speaks directly to how Lions take control of their finances and the impact it can have on our lives. God has clear instructions on how we should view finances and this week the area of wealth will be the focus.
It just tells the truth. It’s Proverbs 22, 7, and many of you may already know it, but it says the rich rules over the poor and the borrower is slave to the lender that is impactful. Verse gas. Debt is a major problem in this world. Bottom line, I do a lot of coaching with a lot of people and the number one issue that they all are facing is how to manage debt, having it get out.
How did I get in? It don’t even get me started on student loan debt. That’s a whole nother topic, which we’ll be talking about, but as a lion that is leading your family, that is trying to be the man you are predestined to be. Debt is something you need to take a hold of, wrestle to the ground and get it out your life period.
So this week we have back with this, my buddy Adam sheets, and we sit down and we talk about debt and we have a pretty good conversation on packing. Both of our journeys. To get out of debt. The Adam talked about some phenomenal tips, some things that he did, that he implored in his life to get out of debt.
His journey was different than mine and you know what? Yours is different than ours. That’s okay. But you know what, when you, when you reach that, when you finally get out of debt and you have that freedom, there’s no feeling like it. So that’s why I am. And I wanted to talk about this topic because it’s so.
We have a lot of tips. We have a lot of encouragement. We have a lot of tools that we talk about. Okay. Is there, it takes a community to actually really embrace getting out of debt and being debt-free no yabby a little bit weird. You got to be a little bit different. You know, you have to understand that, you know, you’re not thinking like the world banks, cause we’re not keeping up with the Joneses because we realize the Joneses are broke.
Right. And that’s fine. You need to be understand contentment and understanding where you are. And being happy with that and not always trying to get the next best thing, right. If you’re just starting out and your marriage and you think you deserve the same size house that your parents have? Well, you probably have a misalignment in values.
Okay. And so many people get in trouble with debt and it’s a slippery slope and it’s not a lot of times you do it with good intentions. But what Adam and I are gonna talk about a really try to give you ways to think through. Do I really need to take this step? Is it the right thing for me and my family or not?
So Proverbs tells us right there, the rich rules over the poor and the borrower is slave to the lender. Now, when you think about slavery does not prayin paint a pretty picture for anyone, right? That’s nowhere you want to be. And that’s a pretty direct words that the Bible is giving us, but it’s giving us those words for.
It wants us to be afraid of really, you need to be afraid of it, run from it. You know what generations ago debt was viewed. It was viewed as a sin. It really was. Nobody wanted to go in debt. You know, you really, you, you, you, you worked, you earned, you paid, you know, this, this thought a barring, you know, that’s, that’s a relatively new concept.
So if you want to live a biblical life godly, At leads your family, the way that God’s telling us to lead them, you really need to take this on directly and make a decision. How are you going to get out of debt now? It’s not easy. It’s not easy, but I don’t want to paint a pretty picture. This is just cupcakes and butterflies.
Here was, this is not, I get it’s work. It’s sacrifice is commitment, but you get aligned with your what’s your why, and really understand where you’re trying to go. You can do this. I’ve helped people seeing people with six figures of debt, knock it out. Doesn’t happen by mistake though, it takes a plan. It takes intentionality.
It takes intensity, but at the end of it, it is something you can accomplish. I believe in you guys. And you’re here to align within us for reason, as you believe in yourself too, you just need some encouragement. And that’s what we’re going to do. We’ll give you that little kick in the pants that you need to get.
So remember that verse. Now, the question of the week, I want you to think about this. Phyllis, are you lying enough to make the changes now, right now that we’re free your family from the bondage of debt in the future. Cause we’re changes you make the day, you can draw a line in the sand and say, you know what, whatever day I’m listening to this podcast, I am turning them out back on debt.
I am not going to do it anymore. I don’t get out. It changed my family for. Today could be today, boys get on board with it, let’s do it. You know, what change and the only person who can take the lead and lead their family to do it is you. I know it’s a big responsibility, but you know what? You can do it.
Why? Because you’re predestined. God has given you the strength. You have, the ability you just need to unleash. So remember that the rich rules over the poor, the bar slave at a lender, we’re going to break free. We’re not going to be in bondage and we’re going to lead our families the way that God wants us to that.
