Treasure II – Out: Budgeting Chapter 3

Week 1: Word

Take some time to read, meditate and journal on how these Scripture passages speak about debt and being content

7 The rich rule over the poor,
and the borrower is slave to the lender.
– Proverbs 22:7 (NIV)

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Phillippians 4:11-13 (NIV)
