Aim to be debt free

financial-freedomI read online at Market Watch a list of 10 habits of debt free people. Number 10 is valuing experience over stuff. Good advice. The goals to experience gratitude, courage, and activity are better suited for economic and spiritual health.

We read in 21st Century Science and Health, “Parents, if you allow your children incessantly to play computer games, want stuff, or be picky, don’t complain later in life if your children are complicated or frivolous. Children should be allowed to keep their innocence and yet mature through growth in the understanding of man and woman’s higher nature. If you worry less “about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear,”[1] you will do more for the wellbeing of children than you can imagine.

“Spirit doesn’t know the stuff called matter. Soul includes in itself all substance and is Life eternal. Matter is a human concept or invention. Life is divine Mind. Life is not limited; death and limitation are unknown to Life. If Life ever had a beginning, it would also have an ending.”


[1] Matt. 6:25, 31; Luke 12:29
