"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" -- Amos 3:3
--- Do not be Unequally Yoked Together with Unbelievers----
"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" -- Amos 3:3 -- We must not be unequally yoked together with people who don't believe the fundamentals of the gospel. After all, how can two people walk together if they don't agree on the direction in which they are going?
Sometimes we think that we can get into a relationship with a person who doesn't believe what we believe about God, thinking that it doesn't matter at this age. However, it does matter --- what's the point of dating if not to prepare for a future marriage?
--- Coffee is the "Attitude" of a Coffee Mug ----
A relationship with a non-believer can also bring us down spiritually. We may become distracted from our relationship with Christ if we are that involved with that kind of person. Of course, we must not judge, but take careful steps to surrender everything to God - so that He will direct our words. Every word we say to a non-believer must be out of complete and total love; something that can only be accomplished by allowing God to fill us up. Coffee fills a coffee cup to the brim - therefore, the coffee is its attitude. Just as coffee in a coffee cup is the cup's attitude, so must Christ be ours. He has to be what is filling our hearts.
