Thoughts on lending money

  Many people like to borrow money. Little that they know that they have fallen into a great hole of misery and doom. Yes, though it brings small joys at first, a long path if misery is knocking on their front door. They are trapped in their own promise, and some smart people will take advantage of this, and without mercy, will try their best to rip apart their borrower' life just because of his broken promise.
  Money is the root of evil, wise people say. The worst is lending. The devil uses it often, corroding away the pureness of hearts. Why? Because it is effective! The human heart does not like waiting, patience is an easy thing to learn, but difficult to master. Only the wise can see through this deception.

 "My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor,
    if you have shaken hands in pledge for a stranger,
you have been trapped by what you said,
    ensnared by the words of your mouth."  ~ proverbs 6:1-2

  But there is a way out. A slim chance, but a chance it is. Plead with your upmost mercy, begging for freeness. Wise and kind people will accept and gracefully free you, but the corroded will not. Keep asking multiple times, do not rest until they free you. 

"So do this, my son, to free yourself,
    since you have fallen into your neighbor’s hands:
Go—to the point of exhaustion—
    and give your neighbor no rest!
Allow no sleep to your eyes,
    no slumber to your eyelids.
Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
    like a bird from the snare of the fowler." ~ proverbs 6:3-5
