Okay, so if I kept receipts, this would definitely be me! Can I blame Walmart? No. Kohls? Maybe. The fashion industry for waiting 40 years to make clothes that finally fit me? YES! Permission must be granted to look in my closet to see the damage/investment I've done.....ha.
I'm glad God doesn't keep receipts either. He says 'love keeps no record of wrongs.' Would there be enough pen and paper just for my list?
I can say that all of my retail purchases are made with money I have and not on credit. I don't like owing anyone financially. I like this verse....Romans 13:8 ''Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.'' Yes, I am in deep debt to those who love me here on Earth but my deepest debt was paid on the Cross.
Yes my collection of jeans is a longed for possession to make up for all those years of knit pants I had to wear. My true treasures await me in heaven tho, that can't be moth eaten or destroyed. Earthly treasures are trivial but what we do for Christ is eternal.
Has your debt been paid or are you just making the minimum payment to Him?
