  1. Debt affects everything we do. It becomes the lens through which everything else is filtered, said, and done.
  2. The Bible doesn’t explicitly forbid debt, but it does discourage debt.
  3. Consider how we can be the blessings that God intends for us to be when we continue to live in chains and shackles.
