We are all born into this world owing so much.  Our debts throughout a lifetime pile up faster than we can pay them off.

What do you owe your parents? 

What do you owe your country? 

What do you owe your church?

Acknowledging your debts brings a strange joy because you can begin really accepting the fact that you are loved. 

As you give of yourself, Christianity is a proclamation of your indebtedness and God’s grace.
