We know how to take care of the things that matter the most to us. If we are not sensitive concerning the people of ministry, we are doing a disservice to them and misrepresenting the Lord. How we govern our personal lives directly impacts our movement ministries.
We cannot give the adversary any ammunition to use against us. Dancing with maxed-out credit cards, unpaid bills, and broken promises that we have not honored must be rectified. The Word reminds us to owe no man. Ignoring our personal obligations while preaching righteouness to others promotes hypocrisy. It is time to settle our accounts.
If we owe creditors, we must begin to make amends. Payments or pledges to others that have not been rectified must be revisited. Even if we owe someone an apology or a phone call, operating in complete integrity will assist us in being a true representation of Kingdom ministry.
2 Kings 4:7 (NKJV)
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest.”
Proverbs 22:26-27 (NKJV)
Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge, one of those who is surety for debts; If you have nothing with which to pay, why should he take away your bed from under you?
Matthew 6:12 (NKJV)
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Romans 13:8 (NKJV)
Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.
