What is Your Credit Score?

Proverbs 22:1 “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”
 
We ought to have a good testimony. People ought to know that you will keep your promises and that you are trust worthy. They ought to know that you are what you say are. They should not have to question if you really are a Christian. What is your credit rating with people? What is your credit standing with the Lord?

I was mowing one day for a gentleman who is elderly. He wanted to pay me before I had finished. I told him he didn’t need to pay me. He insisted. I told him that if he wanted to pay me, to at least wait till I was done. He said he needed to leave and asked me how my credit was and trusted me to finish. It made me think, what do other people think about me? Do I have a good credit rating with the Lord?

Do you have bad credit? I don’t mean financially as much as I mean spiritually. What do people say about you? Do you keep your promises? You should not have bad credit with the Lord. Psalms 44:21 “Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart.” We ought to keep our promises. The decisions we have made in the past at camp, youth rallies, and church ought to be kept. Bad credit is often the result of a lying tongue. We promised to do something, but we didn’t get it done. Does this mean we never make a promise to the Lord? No! It means we ought to work hard at keeping our promises to God.

If you have a bad credit score, start working to restore your credit rating. Pay off your old debts. Restart keeping the promises you made to the Lord. Get a re-commitment to Christ and the decisions you have made to Him. We all ought to be growing to improve our credit score. What is your credit rating?
