With the economy in overdrive now, it’s easy to forget that some of us went through tough times during the great recession and not-so-great recovery. Some 30 million Americans have at least one debt that has gone to collections, and many of us are still finding it hard to pay off even small debts. This impacts not only our credit score but also securing a loan or even moving into a new home. God’s Word tells us we’re to pay what we owe, so Rob West and Steve Moore offer ways to do just that.
