Our entire world seems to revolve around the acquisition of more. Advertisers feed us big, fat lies of how money will bring us joy, peace and fulfillment. The culture we live in, eats, sleeps and breathes immediate gratification. Oh, you can’t afford something? Just open up a new card!
“The American Dream!” they say. But it’s all counterfeit lies from the enemy. When we accumulate more and more debt, we subject ourselves to a yoke too heavy for us to carry, becoming slaves to the lender. When you have no margin to give, many end up cheating God. And when we cheat God, we are truly cheating ourselves.
