Curse of a Debtor Nation
by Rick Boxx
Our desires and agenda can be undermined due to excessive debt. President Obama reviewed many planned items with the leaders of China. According to the news, his agenda met with resistance due to China's concern for our nation's debt.
As our largest investor, China's concerned about our ability to repay their loans. As a growing debtor nation, we've become more subject to them than ever in the past.
In exchange for the Israelites' obedience, God promised in Deuteronomy 15:6 "For the Lord your God will bless you as he has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you."
As a heavily debt laden nation maybe we need to turn back to God's ways.
