One bad habit that is difficult to change is borrowing. Of course, there are instances that this may be inevitable such as when one is in need of a book or a learning aid that one cannot afford to buy at a particular time. However, some people find it easy to borrow clothes, shoes, money and even food. To make matters worse, they find it difficult to return or pay back what was borrowed.
Some would wait for the lender to ask before he or she returns what was borrowed. Some persons would even put up a bad attitude or quarrel with the lender for asking for what is rightfully his/hers. This attitude is unchristianly and immature. When you insult or get angry with anyone who lent you anything, you are ungrateful.
Such an attitude destroys good friendships.Borrowing what you dont need, especially clothes and money, is an act of lack of contentment, which is a sin. Therefore, dont borrow money that you dont need and if you have to borrow a learning material, return it in good time and shape.
Action Point: A borrower is a slave to the lender.
