Picture this: Eve is in the garden and takes a bite of the forbidden fruit. She then gives the fruit to Adam, who saw something wrong and did nothing to stop Eve. Isn’t that what we see today, men who stand by and keep quiet?
I believe the crop of good young men available for women today could be better. Our country sets a poor example through two political parties who have too much pride to put their weapons on the ground and work together to address the debt issue. I was blind and made financial decisions that led to personal debt. I now recognize debt from a long way off, whether we are talking about the lottery, car loans, student loans, credit cards or the hot topic of a new casino.
We now have a teachable moment. Should we choose to bow down at the altar of political expediency, under the guise of prosperity, and like Adam not say anything?
What this world needs are debt-free young men who learn to give and serve others. Debt in our society is a cancer. Many churches offer an answer with biblically based finance classes. I looked in the mirror and did not like what I saw with debt. With the help of my church, I now like what I see.
It’s time for young men to look in the mirror and ask, “Is this the best that I can do?”
