Proverbs 22:26,27 Do Not Pledge

Do not be one who shakes hands in pledge     or puts up security for debts; 27 if you lack the means to pay,     your very bed will be snatched from under you.

Do Not Pledge

The modern economy usews a lot of debt and borrowing.  It seems the Bible doesn’t approve.  Save up money and then pay cash.


  1. What will happen to those who pledge?
  2. Do the foolish pledge on behalf of themselves, others, or both?
  3. Why do you think the Bible is anti-pledging?
  4. How should we approach loans and securities?
  5. How could you save more before you spend?
