Compassionate Creditors

According to the Wall Street Journal, one-third of business owners surveyed are planning on being more aggressive in collecting the money owed to them. Hopefully they will remember to balance it with compassion.

Although we need to collect monies owed to us, God knew that at times His people needed some boundaries.

In Exodus 22:26-27 God warned the Israelites, “If you take your neighbor’s cloak as a pledge, return it to him by sunset, because his cloak is the only covering he has for his body. What else will he sleep in? When he cries out to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate.”

God is just, so He does wish for you to collect what’s owed, but He also desires you to show respect and compassion to the poor.
