Unequally Yoked – Part IV
By: Rick Boxx
February 7, 2013
A dentist had been in a partnership for decades when he suddenly had a life changing encounter with God. When he learned the concept of being “unequally yoked” he feared that in order to obey God he needed to sever his longstanding business relationship.
Since God knew in advance of his partnership, I encouraged him that maybe God desired to use him to impact his partner instead.
Luke 8:38-39 says, “The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying,“Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”
God may arrange for an unequally yoked partnership to dissolve, but if you’re already there, begin by telling how much God has done for you. Let God handle the rest.
