Lending money

I have heard of many stories where those who work overseas borrow money from one another for tempory financial emergencies on site or at home. Though the preferred choice is for one to live within one’s means and to even save for a rainy day, sometimes temporary borrowing is inevitable. However, do not make it a habit nor encourage it and always repay the debt in full within the shortest time possible.

For the lender be aware, that it is quite often you will not get your money back. So does it mean you never led a friend in need? No but just remember, you cannot lend what you do not have. Do not burst your own budget to take someone else’s burden unless it is a matter of life or death and not because of a fancy need. William Shakespeare advised against loaning money, “Neither a borrower nor a lender be; for loan doth oft lose both itself and friend.”If you lend be prepared to not receive repayment for the loan. Beware of cheaters and scams. Ask the Lord to help you be kind to lend (in real need) or not to lend when it is a habitual practice because of living beyond that person’s means. .

Luke 6 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.
