This Bible Story is as relevant as today's news. The Bible has a lot to say about debt. Christians and debt are not a good combination.
The excessive use of debt to finance life is par for the course for most people, and the creditors are coming! Living paycheck to paycheck does not allow for left overs and breadwinners are either struggling to do what needs to be done, or sidestepping the job. Breadwinners leave through divorce or death, and wives with children are left to figure it all out - and the children pay the highest price.
A Godly man, dies leaving his family in debt and no provision for their care. They have no assets, and the creditor has determined that her sons will become slaves to pay the debt of their father. (2 Kings 4:1-7) "But now his creditors are coming to take my two boys as his slaves". This is the cry of the widow of the Prophet, a peer of Elisha.
