One day a business owner called for counsel. He had built his business without debt, but had recently landed a contract with a major corporation.
The contract was for $500,000, but to complete it this entrepreneur needed $250,000 for equipment. He felt he had no option but to borrow the money.
He and I discussed options, prayed together, and then I urged him to ask his customer for a 50% deposit. He was confident they would refuse.
Days later he called me elated. “They wrote me a check for $250,000!” he shouted.
Psalm 18:30 teaches, “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”
Never assume debt is the only answer! God is the answer.
