“be indebted to no one”

“be indebted to no one except to one another in love.” Romans 13:8

As I’ve been trying, and we continue to pay down debt, this verse has been on my heart. The idea of being in debted to no one EXCEPT in love. What an idea. That we only owe in love. It’s definitely made me rethink swiping my card before spending money.

I find that debt has taken up more space in my brain than just stress over finances. It’s caused stress when things unexpectedly occur, like my husbands truck getting totaled last Friday. It wasn’t paid off. We don’t have insurance on him if he gets hit by someone without insurance, and it was a hit and run, so we don’t even know who to track down for money!

It also has caused emotional strain. Not anymore, but there was a point when I realized I was bringing a lot of debt into our marriage where I felt guilty for the choices I made when I was single. For spending money like it didn’t matter, with no regard to the consequences. Now my sweet husband and I get to tackle it together, which isn’t his fault. It’s taken me a little bit of time to not feel guilty, but to turn that guilt into motivation to get out of debt ASAP!

What are you in debted to? Is it something that causes stress and is weighing you down, more than just emotionally?Hopefully it’s only to others in love! ♥️
