As a member of the Messianic body, or a community you shouldn’t be looking to profit of other parts of the same body. So you shouldn’t charge interests or even borrow money in general, but to give it freely instead.
The wicked borrows and does not repay, But the righteous shows mercy and gives. – Psalm 37:21
Notice how this part covers both giving and paying. Or this one:
Do not be one of those who shakes hands in a pledge,We know what God has to say about this. Satan and his evil empire will try to trick you, even the people of God to stumble. Problem I’ve seen in many churches and with the churches themselves is that they love storing money. They’re set ups. Set up as a business under the cover of godliness.
This may hurt some of your feelings, but it’s the truth.
A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished. – Proverbs 28:20
Consider this teaching:
27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do so. 28 Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come back, And tomorrow I will give it,” When you have it with you. – Proverbs 3:27
Because a lot of people will grow fat on their riches, refusing to help those in need. Using all kinds of excuses when exposed. Minding only themselves, and pretending they care for God. Being believers only so much as it is fitting for them. Don’t be like that.
We’re talking about money within this context now. We won’t go further into the love of money in general. It has many “faces”, and this is one of them.
Money and the unbelievers
Now regarding this, you’re guided by God (as in everything else) so what’s summing it up is this teaching:
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you. – Hebrews 13:15
Simply let your life be free of greed and covetousness. Be a leader of the family and a good host, and leader of the family if you’re a man, or a good wife if you’re a woman, but don’t be thirsty for money and a sneaky, greedy snake.
Again, you can’t hide anything, you can’t wiggle out of the truth, and all will be revealed. This is about those posing and pretending they’re not something they are.
Treating unbelievers in a way that will make them consider what you have to say and listen to you about God, or simply get interested by YOUR example is VERY important. So handle your actions accordingly.
If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the Lord will reward you. – Proverbs 25:21-22
Now, if you wanna be technical, and find loopholes somewhere so you can justify your greed for money and such, and keep living that life… you won’t. Furthermore, it’ll just get you into more trouble. Because the Word of God is alive, and it isn’t a dead letter on paper. Prepare to go before the judge Yeshua the Messiah when your time comes.

Got to see the Lord Yeshua in an NDE. I didn't know exactly what to do, but following the things I was shown. I got to read the Bible. Then I felt I found this only way. I've read many of the so-called spiritual teachings before this, but all of them failed to line up to what I was shown.
