Debt Forgiveness

by Guy C. LaMar

When people do good deeds for others and expect something in return for those good deeds, then that person is offering a loan.

But if that person gives the impression that they are helping them out freely, and doesn’t tell the other person whom they are helping, and that they are actually expecting to be paid back, then they are doing something with a hidden agenda. That’s called an involuntary loan.

If they try to project themselves to others as being a good person, who is offering to help out someone freely but are actually expecting to be paid back, then that person is being a fake. People like this do things for others for bragging rights.

It’s an ego thing.

People that are money hungry are especially out to get paid back when they see the one that they helped out is back on their feet.

But If someone does something for someone and expects to be paid back, then the one who is being blessed must first know they have to pay back the debt. That’s called a loan.

If someone does something for someone freely and expects nothing in return that’s called “Christian Charity” or a “love offering”.

Anything else is just a loan.

But if someone offers to help someone out, coming off as though they are doing it out of love, with nothing expected in return, but then, later on, they turn around and want to be paid back, then that person is absolutely underhanded and fake.

It’s very rare when we find someone who will actually go out of their way to help others and expect NOTHING in return.

There are generally hidden agendas.

Often it’s people that do good deeds for others who are doing it really for show.

Most people are NOT blind to what they are up to either.

Often the person will give some crybaby story as to why they are justified in wanting to be paid back.

Yet they never let the one they helped out know they had to pay them back but rather even worse they made them think they were having something good and freely being done for them.

They want to be seen as a “good” person by others.

They are seeking to be a hero in the eyes of others.

They want to be approved by others.

Yet, later on when they think the person that they did something good for is back on their feet and doing good they come out of the blue wanting to be paid back.

This is a petty selfish snake in the grass move.

It happens often and clearly reveals the type of person that they truly are.

Of such are just offering an involuntary loan.

Most of the time it is the broken down and poor that will go out of their way to help someone else and never ever once expect anything in return.

Because they are 100 percent genuine good people.

But when someone does something for someone and acts like they are doing it out of love with nothing expected in return but yet, later on, expects to be paid back then they are a FAKE person.

Which is the same as being a liar.

Unless they make an agreement before they partake in helping someone.

In that case, it’s called a loan!

Anything else is an involuntary loan.

A TRUE CHRISTIAN forgives a debt before they offer to help someone.

If they agree that they will be paid back and the Christian isn’t ever paid back it’s the Christian duty as a follower of Christ to forgive the person their debt.

Otherwise, they are NOT a true Christian.

People that take advantage of Christians kindness will reap what they sow.

Jesus said it’s better to give than to get.

Love is to give and not expect anything in return.

That’s the Way of Jesus.

Remember this always - what sincere good deeds that we do for others without expecting anything in return are building up treasures in the kingdom.

But doing things expecting something in return is for the glory of now.

Personally, I’ve witnessed this often.

If someone does something for me I make sure to ask them if I’ve got to pay them back.

If they say no then I take them on their word.

I’ve run into some crooked liars in the past so I’m very cautious.

I detest people that want to keep other people down or who want to control others.

Once I was renting from someone and when that person found out that I had a better paying job they raised the rent on me.

So I just ended up moving.

I despise that type of underhanded greed.

I’ve been around some very crooked and evil types in my life that just LUST for money and gain.

That takes advantage of others for their own gain.

It’s all evil greed and I personally recognize it with ease.

It’s these types of people that THINK that you’re so beneath them that you don’t deserve what they feel that only they deserve.

I’ve known entire families that were obsessed with greed.

People that look down on others because of financial situations.

Yet God’s Word tells us that the poor are closer to Him than the more financially secure.

Of such types are of Satan the Devil.

Judas was such a type.

Filled with greed.

Filled with lies.

Filled with deception.

Look at how the brothers of Joseph did him.

Truly the love or yearning for money or for gain is the gateway to evil.

Evil people will bully others for self-gain.

God’s people are even kind to the wicked people.

It’s hard to do at times but it’s the Way of a Christian.

Love covers a multitude of sins.

Luke 6:35 –

“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.”

Matthew 5:42 –

’ Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.’

Exodus 22:25 –

“If you lend money to any of My people with you who is poor, you shall not be like a moneylender to him, and you shall not exact interest from him.”

Matthew 6:12 –

’ And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.’ □
