Yoked unequally

The word talks some about equality in Yoking. There is such a thing as being Unequally yoked.

Now, that's not a bad thing if in the yoking one is strong where the other is weak and vice versa.

But, in faith, in ethics, in convictions and in vision, the yoking must be equal.

That's true in marriage, in Ministry, In Business and even in intimate friendships.

If you are unequally yoked, one will draw on the other. That will cause deterioration. You have seen the woman with a heart towards God become entangled unequally with someone who took them into deep sin. In business where a partner yokes with someone who is unethical. In ministry where the vision is to elevate man above GOD.

I just had a negative experience in becoming nearly unequally yoked with a man in a business relationship where it would have been parasitic. I'm not interested. Sometimes you have to know when to hold em, know when to fold them, know when to walk away and know when to run. I didn't run, I just walked away.

Good for you to recognize and desire God over mammon. God will honor that. Another Word aobut Unequal Yoking from a different view. That of Christ married to the backslider. that of Christ and the Bride of Chrsit and then we look at ourselves and if we are HONEST, we see our flaws our downfalls, the sin that so easily besets us... and YET Christ our Lover woos us, YET HE comes to us again and again... Yet He tells us ( if we have ears to hear) How beautiful we are...How much HE loves us, desires us, sees us as we yet do not see ourselves. talk about unequally yoked! And yet He stays.

Kathy Trocolli sings a song called Stubborn Love. Oh may we not just be recepients of His Stubborn Love, but may we be CARRIERS of it, infecting many!
