CHIPPING AWAY AT MEDICAL BILLS

When considering our medical bills, we can be overwhelmed. There are hospital & doctor charges from three towns, and lab & test charges from four towns.

It is tempting to go borrow money, pay the bills off, and only need to deal with one bill; but today’s verse gives us other advice.

Proverbs 6:6, “…learn by watching an anthill.”

I’ve used ants to remove tree stumps. You pour flat pop on the stump. The ant takes a small bite of the stump and pop, and takes it to the anthill. It can take years…but as long as we kept dumping pop on it…it slowly was eaten away.

My friend, Jill says, “Inch by inch, life is a cinch; yard by yard, life can be hard.”

As each bill arrives, we send $10.00 or $20.00 to them. If the bill is small, and we have enough on hand, we just pay it. We will be paying on these for some time to come, but I know if we are faithful in the little things, God will reward us.
