Bad news: The consequences of debt, bankruptcy and gambling threaten all of us, either directly or indirectly. Good news: God’s desire for us is to experience the abundant life:“I [Jesus] came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). We can follow God’s direction or we can try to shortcut it. Gambling and the abuse of consumer credit are shortcuts that advertise the abundant life but lead to a distorted version of it: one that often ends in bankruptcy. Or chronic discontent. Or missing the best God has for us. Or all three. God has given us ample direction for experiencing this abundant life, and we want to share this good news with you.
