“What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone?” - James 2:14 (NLT)
I remember crying on the phone with my brother one day. This was about six or seven years ago. I was pouring out my heart to him about my dreams.
My grandma, who co-signed my student loans, called my brother to “talk some sense into me” because she was stressed out. She was getting phone calls every day from my student loan companies because I couldn’t pay my monthly bills.
I was working two jobs, but my bank account was nearly empty.
My brother generously offered to help me make the monthly payments. I didn’t want my grandma to have a heart attack because of my debt. It wasn’t her burden to carry.
