Are You Unequally Yoked?

I received an email that reminded me that some people believe Paul’s “unequally yoked” principle, found in 2 Corinthians, doesn’t apply to business; while others take it to the extreme of avoiding doing business with even customers who don’t profess to be Christians.

Twice in King Jehoshaphat’s life he formed alliances with other Kings known for their wickedness, and, suffered God’s wrath.

In 2 Chronicles 20:37 a prophet told Jehoshaphat, “Because you have made an alliance with Ahaziah, the Lord will destroy what you have made. The ships were wrecked and were not able to set sail to trade.”

The key to Jehoshaphat’s punishment was that his alliances benefited the wicked. God wants to have a say in your partnerships and alliances, and it’s not to advance someone’s wicked ways.
