Married to an accountant, believing in the Dave Ramsey way, and generally trying to be a good steward of what God has given, I have always heard buying is better than renting for long term. We have only rented once in our lives, and that was when we were first married.
But I think there is one time we should only consider only renting for the long run.
As Christians we are supposed to be aliens, strangers in this world. We are to be in the world but not of the world. In other words we are only renting.
We are only renting this body until Jesus comes back from preparing a place for us. He’s already bought us and the place for us to live with Him.
We actually don’t have to buy anything!
So if you’re buying right now….SELL and start renting!
