The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is the slave of the lender. Proverbs 22:7
There have been no vacations.
No new clothes or shoes or purses.
No dinners at fancy restaurants.
No shopping for unnecessary stuff.
There have been budgets and grocery lists and a whole heck of a lot of no and we can’t.
But there is also hope.
Oh, how there is the hope that we will no longer owe anyone money someday.
That the credit card companies won’t know our name or address anymore because we know better now.
That we will be free from the overwhelming amount of pressure that debt can put on a person.
The borrower is the slave of the lender.
But we refuse to be any longer.
As of today, we have paid off $10,000 worth of debt.
We did so in six months.
We’re well on our way. We can see freedom in the distance.
And it feels so damn good.
This is for you, boys. It’s all for you.
And thank you, thank you, thank you, Dave Ramsey, for changing our lives.
