Well it’s the time of year that I try to get all my financial housework in order. One of those chores is to get a credit report and make sure that there are no mistakes.
Many years ago..while I was still quite naïve about just how companies determined our credit score, I decided I would go online and check it out. It was very easy to check and to my surprise their were some mistakes on our report that lowered our credit score! It took a bit to get that little mess cleaned up, but as soon as we did our credit score jumped up.
Personally I think it is well worth the little time it takes to check you credit rating to make sure it’s in order. This is the standard that almost all companies use to see if you are financially responsible. If there is a mistake of some sort on your report, whether yours or the mistake of a company, you are responsible to clear it up.
Let’s make sure that we are glorifying God even in our finances and make sure our financial reputation is above reproach
There are many online resources to get your free credit score. I would highly recommend you use them…it only takes a few minutes of time.
