(L50) 20% of The Richest Man

What 20% of this book has impacted you the most? (Referring to The Richest Man in Babylon.)

In my perspective, the most impacting parts of this book were those that tied biblical worldviews to economic worldviews. For example, debt being slavery in the sense of bondage. Everything a man can possibly do to avoid being in debt should be done; however future oriented (productive) debt is legitimate. If borrowing money becomes a must in one’s life, then a written plan/contract should be produced before the money is loaned. All contracts must be honored, and each debt must be repaid. A man in debt should be paying off his debts in such a way to honor his priorities; 10% (at least) to God first, then 20% (or as much as can be spared) to whom he is indebted.

This book had many lessons, most of which were centered around economic and morally sound principles of life.
