We live in a world where debt is frequently incurred, sometimes unnecessarily. In our passage, Paul tells us that as far as possible we should seek to be free from debt. However, the ultimate debt we owe is of love to God for His unmeasurable love for us, and of love to our neighbor. Though we can never fully pay off the debt in this life, we can at least make a small difference by loving God with all our beings, and loving our neighbors, even our enemies, as we love ourselves. We examine this topic more closely and see that it is the Law of God which defines love and that in keeping this Law, we are demonstrating our love to God and to our neighbors.
