    One thing GOD has instructed us not to do which many of us continue to do is become a surety for another. We are not to co-sign for our family, our friends nor our children. It may be hard to say no when loved ones ask. However, it is the commandment of GOD. People find themselves paying for cars, furniture or loans when someone else defaults on what they owe. Obedience will prevent such trouble.
