Rhapsody of Realities Wednesday 13 - 2016 | Topic - Be Honourable

Opening Scripture:

The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth (Psalm 37:21).

Someone once asked, "Does God bless borrowed money, including borrowed money given to Him as offerings and seed?"
There’s nothing wrong if you borrow money, but make sure you pay back; otherwise, God doesn’t like it. The Bible says, "The wicked borroweth and payeth not again."God describes the one who doesn’t pay his or her debt as wicked. God wants you to serve Him with wholehearted devotion, and willingness of mind, but at the same time, with honesty. Your integrity should be impeccable.
There’re people who don’t have credibility, and don’t care about their integrity.

When they owe, they refuse to pay, and start praying for debt cancellation. Others deliberately stay away or hide from their creditors. This is wrong; it’s the way of the wicked. The word "wicked" in our opening verse describes one whose ways are perverse; someone who isn’t walking in the light of God; and that shouldn’t be you. If you owe any debt, don’t let it linger; pay promptly.

Most people who don’t pay back when they borrow, lack integrity, and as a result, they delay their own blessing. If you’re an employer, don’t owe your employees their salaries. When people work for you, don’t delay their payments. We’ve been called to live a higher life. We’re the light of the world. Let the character of Christ be expressed through you always, and in all things.

PRAYER


Dear Father, I rejoice greatly, because I know that you care for me, and all of my needs have been entered into your supply system. I don’t lack any good thing, and I owe no one, for I’m abundantly supplied; I’m prosperous, and in all circumstances, self- sufficient, requiring no aid or support. Thank you Father, for all things are mine, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
