2 Corinthians 6:14 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
After Monica explained to her fiancé that she was still an unbeliever when she had the abortion Cynthia told him about, she apologized and explained to him that the only reason Cynthia knew about this was that she sought Cynthia’s counsel on how best to tell him about her shameful past.
When Cynthia heard that Monica and Gerald were still going ahead with their wedding as planned, she felt humiliated. She later decided to go to Monica and apologize for what she had done. Monica told her that she had already forgiven her.
Even though Monica forgave Cynthia, she was wise enough to discontinue her friendship with Cynthia. Cynthia was not born again and Monica always knew this. Even if she didn’t know this before, she now knew.
One of the wisest things you can do for yourself is to obey all God’s precepts; they will protect you from unnecessary trouble.
Being nice and friendly with unbelievers is different from letting an unbeliever be your friend and confidant. Doing this is simply foolishness because the unbeliever will end up hurting you, either spiritually or physically; intentionally or unintentionally. An unbeliever you are yoked with will infect you with his unbelief, whether you like it or not. The worst thing that can happen to a Christian is unbelief; when he loses his faith.
Go into today asking the Lord to send you true friends that believe in Him. Determine today to wisely discontinue close friendship with those who do not truly believe in Jesus.
Prayer: Thank God for giving you life; thank Him for relationships.
Ask for the wisdom to make the right friendships.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
