One of my favorite bible verses is Proverbs 22:6. Most people know it by heart.

“Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.”

I knew it before I became a parent but it has so much more significance now with kids running around. I think about that great responsibility and, honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming to me to think that God left me in charge of that task for my kids.

Do you know the verse that comes directly after that well known part of the Bible?

Proverbs 22:7

“The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.”

We don’t talk about that one as much, frankly, because it’s not as comfortable to talk about. Raising kids is thought to be a noble cause and a responsibility to be taken with great focus and effort.

Following God’s plan with your finances is just as important. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that those two verses come up side by side. Some of us weren’t raised (trained up) to do well with finances. I know that I wasn’t. I had to learn the hard way. Others know what they are supposed to be doing but need some accountability.

We promised that if we ever dug out from being in debt, we would offer that opportunity to others. We are offering that to you now. If you want to know what financial freedom feels like, we can help you get there. We’ve done it with many people and we can help you get back on track.

It’s very hard to see where you are heading when you are constantly looking behind you. Whatever is in your past (and that was a ton of debt for us) we can help set your path to a different future. One that follows His plan for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This is God’s promise.
