Verse of the Day

2 Corinthians 6:14

Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?

2 Corinthians 6:14

Unequally Yoked

Paul’s advice here is for believers who are not married. He tells them to seek out a mate who is equally yoked, someone who also loves the Lord instead of a nonbeliever. Why would he say this? He goes on to question how righteousness can partner with wickedness and light live with darkness. The two cannot exist together. One will overtake the other and most of the time the nonbeliever has more influence than the believer. Perhaps Paul knew that it would be a hard life for the believer if he or she was always trying to witness to the other spouse.

There is still hope for those who are in relationships that are unequally yoked. With the strength of the Lord, the believer can be a witness for the spouse. It will be a much harder life, but it is possible with God. Nothing is impossible with Him!

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
May my marriage be glorifying to you. May we bring you honor in all we do. Amen.
