Today's Verse : 2 Corinthians 6:14


December 10, 2011

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do
righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can
light have with darkness?
-- 2 Corinthians 6:14
There is probably no other Scripture that has produced more
conflict for ministers than this one. While not applying just to
marriage, this verse is a powerful reminder that when we make
life-long partnerships with those who do not share our deepest
values, we are endangering our spiritual health. Just as God would
not allow the Israelites under the Law to yoke a donkey and an ox
together because it would ultimately break them both down, Paul
reminds Christians that the same is true in their deepest
relationships as well.
Father God, I know your will is not arbitrary. I know you want
what is best for me. So please give me wisdom as I choose my
partners and my closest friends. Help us to help each other live
for you and share your blessings and grace. Help us to influence
others to come to know you, your mercy, and your salvation more
completely. In Jesus' name. Amen.
