Gazelle Intensity

Dave Ramsey talks alot about being "gazelle intense". He uses this passage from Proverbs:

1 My son, if you have put up security for your neighbor or entered into an agreement with a stranger, 2 you have been trapped by the words of your lips ensnared by the words of your mouth. 3 Do this, then, my son, and free yourself, for you have put yourself in your neighbor's power: Go, humble yourself, and plead with your neighbor. 4 Don't give sleep to your eyes or slumber to your eyelids. 5 Escape like a gazelle from a hunter, like a bird from a fowler's trap.

Then he shows a clip from the Discovery Channel of a gazelle escaping from a cheetah. The gazelle is running for it's life! It always brings me to tears, even though I've seen it several times. Because that's how I feel. Like I'm running for my life from the creditors and I'm not sure I'm going to get away.

If you ever wonder if the Bible applies today, you need look no further than this verse.
