Many People Shipwrecked Because Of Wrong Associations
2 Chronicles 20:35 After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who acted very wickedly. And he allied himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion Geber. But Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, “Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the Lord has destroyed your works.” Then the ships were wrecked, so that they were not able to go to Tarshish.
Be careful who you have associations with. Because Jehosaphat had the wrong partner, his whole business went down and it cost people their lives.
Bad company corrupts, so be careful who you hang around. Who you spend your time with. Who you are loyal to. Sometimes you just have to cut out toxic, ungodly relationships before they poison your whole life, and you become shipwrecked too.
If churches are ships, in an ecumenical culture of compromise and political correctness, don't let your church be taken down by wrong associations either. No compromise.
Father help me to choose my friends and partners well. Forgive me for having made bad choices in the past. I choose Your way so I can stay afloat in Jesus' Name Amen.
