There is no such thing as a free lunch. There is no such thing as free money. Everything that is readily available to you has been produced by someone’s work somewhere. It’s worth noting that the Children of Israel were promised a land overflowing with milk and honey. In the literal sense, that never happened. They had to cultivate their land, and God blessed them with a bountiful harvest. Where do some people get the idea that they can get free money without having to work? This must be some sort of demonic perversion.
Many experts around the world have raised eyebrows at the borrowing habits of several West African countries. Especially since these borrowings have not reflected in an increase in national productivity. There is no sense that the loans have been leveraged strategically. Every free money you receive comes with unfavourable conditions attached to it. As long as your mind believes it is receiving free money and assistance from somewhere else. Your brain will go to sleep. Discipline yourself and work hard enough so that you can provide for yourself. Overdependence on foreign aid will stifle your own growth.
A loan is not a gift. A loan represents a gamble on your future productivity. The idea was that by taking out this loan, you would be able to operate at a higher level of productivity. The benefit is that you can repay such loans due to increased output, and then plan your next steps. If you are currently receiving “loans” or free lunches that are not increasing your productivity, you should decline them. In the long run, the free money you are enjoying in the short term is mortgaging your destiny. You are being enslaved. Increasing your productivity has to be your main concern.
