Out of Debt by Being Obedient

Being obedient is a great way to get out of debt.

If you think about all the times you are told to “get out of debt” “Make sure you are getting out of credit card debt” you will know that this point of the Scout Law is clear.

Staying clear of debt is an eternal principal. Debt has been around and has been a bad thing since the beginning of time.

In the book the “Richest Man in Babylon,” we are told to be obedient to the Gods. To pay 10% of your income to the Gods and you will be taken care of. We are told the same thing in the old testament “will a man rob God” Malachi 3:8-9 In the Koran we are taught the same thing and in every major religion in the world.

Why is it so important to be obedient? Because in being obedient we are admitting that there is something greater than ourselves. We become humble and it is only through a humble mind that we can be taught the great things that this world has to offer.

When we are obedient we also might learn something from someone else. (Like how to manage our finances) When I was young and knew everything I thought that I had no need to listen or to be obedient, mostly to my Dad. He was this old man that did not know what “real” life was all about.

It was only when I got a little older and dumber that I realized that I had a great need to be obedient to not only my father but to the good teachings that I learn. “If we are not obedient to the lessons learned what does it profit a man to learn them” Being obedient is part of being true to yourself.

Be obedient to the law "get out of debt” and you will reap the rewards of prosperity and peace.

"A man in debt is so far a slave,"
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
