Man borrows money from institutions that hold large amounts of money.
They give one an opportunity to obtain something we need or desire.
The bigger the cost of interest, the easier it is to obtain larger amounts of money from them.
Transactions like this have a price tag.
This cost is not immediately paid.
It is interest.
It is the cost of receiving money when you want it.
Eccl 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
Payday is not immediate for committing sin.

Hebr 11:25 ...the pleasures of sin for a season;
Pleasures of sin are only for a season.
Payday will arrive afterwards.
Never before now has it been so easy to lure people into sin.
We are so temporal minded.
Like the proverbial ostriches with heads in the sand, hoping that what we don’t think about will go away.
Just don’t think about it or believe it.
Judgment day is coming.
Hell charges high interest.
That is why its lures are big.
It uses such advertising.
It disguises the actual price in mathematical complications.
"Compounded interest", etc.
I know people whose cars are long since ruined, turning to dust in dump yards, who are still paying for the vehicles because they resorted to a lending institution of high interest.
Whereas the bank partially looked out for your interest, and refused to lend you what they felt you could not repay, the other group charged more interest and accepted your request.
Satan has high interest.
The drug addict enjoys the illusions induced by drugs.
Not only the cost of money for such illusions, but brain cells burn out with every high.
The cost of artificial joy is the toll of insanity.
