They have a lot of nerve expecting me to be a responsible adult who knows what I can or can’t afford and should or shouldn’t do. I don’t think most people really realize how much they spend eating out each month and would be shocked to find that they could probably hire a housekeeper or a gardener for that same amount.
I don’t have time to take care of my yard, so I will hire a crew of gardeners to do it.
We so proudly display our bumper stickers that say “Say no to drugs.” but how many of us could proudly display a bumper sticker that says “Say no to debt, I’m debt free”.

(stand on your own two feet), TAKE UP YOUR BED (start being responsible for your own things), and WALK (become active in solving your own problems which may mean physical labor, or doing without some things).Maybe Jesus asked this question because He too thought here is a man, like so many do these days, making excuses, being a victim and waiting for someone else to fix his problem for him. You need to be like the lame man and GET UP, TAKE UP YOUR BED and WALK.If you know you are going out to eat too much then stop saying you’re a victim of these hard economic times.Be responsible for the “bed” (or the debts that you have now) and actively start doing something about it . I can take every excuse for eating out that I mentioned above and prove that they’re not really valid.
