Chapter-a-Day 2 Corinthians 6

Divergent_pathsDon’t become partners with those who reject God. 2 Corinthians 6:14 (TM)

When I think of the word "partnership" I think of two distinct relationships. There are marriage partnerships. There are business partnerships. I have both. I would hate to be in either with a person who did not share the same faith.

Partnerships require two people to make daily decisions that will affect each other, the two as a whole, and others who are dependent on that partnership. Even when the partners share the same vision, share the same values, share the same faith and share the same principles, there are still times when the relationship becomes strained. When the partners do not have those things in common, it becomes perilously difficult – if not impossible. When partnerships fail the acute pain is intense and the fallout is widespread.

It’s best just to avoid partnering with those who aren’t walking the same spiritual path as you.

  1. The attached photo reminded me of Jerry Foster talking about “vector points” or how little changes today can grow over the future. It is encouraging that little changes today can bring great things down the road.
    It is also scary how what we might think of as ‘little’ issues can grow into big ordeals. It should be much easier to address those little things with someone who is a “partner” in our beliefs. Why even then is it so hard?
