Debt, debt, and debt was the topic of tonight. Proverbs 22:7 says, "The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender. Everyone knows that debt makes you a slave to the people that you owe. The Lord does not want us to be slaves to anyone or anything. He made us to be free.

One of the main points that stuck tonight is when Andy asked why we would even go into debt. Is is to keep up with the new best thing? It's funny because then we get the new best thing and that doesn't satisfy and so we go get the newest best thing and on and on and we become a slave to this and we are in major debt or maybe we aren't in debt but we are trapped. Are we doing this to impress for people that we don't even really care about because if we are then what is the point? The people that really care about us don't care what we have and don't have, they care about us! It all goes back to motives. Also, this makes us self centered which is one of Satan's best plows to keep us from focusing on God!

Self control has everything to do with everything. Proverbs 25:28 says, "Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control." Back in the day, walls to a city were everything; they kept all the good "things" in and the bad "things" out. A person who lacks self control has no boundaries; its almost like anything goes! This can be applied to soooo many things! I don't even have time to go into all of them but to say that I need some major self control in many areas and I am glad the Lord reminded me of this yet again because although I know this I deperatly need to be reminded!

I wish I could write more but to be honest, Adelyn was crying, I accidentally sat on my plate of food (don't even ask!) and Annabelle was going a little crazy and so I was not able to concentrate on this as much as I would have liked to! That's how it goes being a mom to two babies I guess, my mind is always divided!
