Christ's Teachings on Wealth
Monetary Debt is never good
2Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
2Th 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
3:12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
2Th 3:13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
2Th 3:14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
The greatest debt
The greatest debt ever owed is the debt of our sins against a righteous and holy God, a debt that could only be paid for by a perfect sacrifice, Jesus Christ did that for us
1st John 4:10
A good example to follow
