United States gross federal debt as percentage...

Today’s economic environment is certainly not a favorable one. Many believe that we have some potentially catastrophic financial problems facing us. Consider what an increase in interest rates of a few percentage points would do.

The federal government is the catalyst behind most of our current debt. The U.S. Government currently owes in excess of $13 trillion (and growing by the minute). Most Americans today work until mid-May (adjusted for the Federal Budget Deficit) each year just to pay their taxes. In spite of taking in more than $2 trillion a year in tax receipts, the government is currently borrowing another $1+ trillion!

God’s Word is never wrong. The Lord gave His people two principles nearly 3,000 years ago. He promised that if the people who were called by His name would obey His statutes and commandments, “Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the LORD, and they will stand in awe of you. The LORD will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. The LORD will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them.” Deuteronomy 28:10-12 (NLT)

He also warned that if His statutes and commandments were ignored, the foreigner would become the lender and they would become debtors. That is exactly where our nation is today! More than $4 trillion of our total debt is now held by foreign lenders (in excess of 30% of our total debt).

The cycle can be reversed, but only if God’s people will turn to His way and be willing to be counted in His camp – without compromise. Each of us at every level must be willing to live by the statutes and commandments of our Lord to make a difference. The bottom line is not “Are we able to make a difference?” It is “Are we willing to make a difference?”

Committing to, and following God’s statutes and commandments without compromise is essential for business prosperity. If you would like to know more about using God’s Word as your business manual, email me at info@commonsensecfo.com or call Kirk at 402-658-7340.
