My sister is too mean


November 02, 2018

Dear Pastor,

I borrowed $10,000 from my oldest sister to pay my light bill. I told her that I would give her back the money, but I wasn't able to do so on time. My sister cursed me and called me a thief.

She asked my boyfriend for the money and my boyfriend told her that he is not getting involved between my sister and I.

I called my sister and told her that she shouldn't have asked my boyfriend for the money. She told me that he is my man, so I should not be worried about that.

She also said that if he is having sex with me, he should be able to give me $10,000 because that is not money.

My sister is in a much better position than I am. She has a better job. She makes more money than I. I don't see why she can't help me.

I offered my sister $5,000 and she refused to take it. She wants all her money at once.

Pastor, don't you think she is unfair? I am not stealing her money. My boyfriend has two children and he has to support them, so he is unable to give me the money to repay her. Please give me your advice.


Dear E.T.,

Put away the $5,000. Some relatives are not very helpful. Your sister is evidently in a better position than you are.

Your man is not able to give you the $10,000 that you borrowed from your sister. So, your sister should empathise with you.

She knows that you would pay her. She shouldn't behave as if you are a thief, neither should she be vulgar in her language in talking to you.

I have deleted what she said about your boyfriend and your. I hope you are working, and I hope that very soon you would repay your sister what you have borrowed.

May I suggest that if you are working, that you would join a credit union and save some money weekly, fortnightly or monthly so that you would be able to borrow from the credit union instead of borrowing from an individual.

Don't hold anything against your sister. Perhaps $10,000 is like a $1 million to her. If you did not need the money, you would not have borrowed it from her.

Both of you are sisters and you should endeavour to live in peace. You need each other.
