TOPIC: THANKS, BUT NO THANKS

KEY VERSE:

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. -.2 Corinthians 6:14

Today’s Scripture:

A Christian school for autistic children in India received a big donation from a corporation. After checking that there were no strings attached, they accepted the money. But later, the corporation requested to be represented on the school board. The school director returned the money. She refused to allow the values of the school to be compromised. She said, “It’s more important to do God’s work in God’s way.”

There are many reasons to decline help, and this is one of them. In the Bible we see another. When the exiled Jews returned to Jerusalem, King Cyrus commissioned them to rebuild the temple (Ezra 3). When their neighbors said, “Let us help you build because, like you, we seek your God” (4:2), the leaders of Israel declined. They concluded that by accepting the offer of help, the integrity of the temple rebuilding project might have been compromised and idolatry could have crept into their community since their neighbors also worshiped idols. The Israelites made the right decision, as their “neighbors” then did all they could to discourage the building.

With the help of the Holy Spirit and the counsel of wise believers in Jesus, we can develop discernment. We can also be confident to say no to friendly offers that may hide subtle spiritual dangers because God’s work done in His way will never lack His provision. By:  Poh Fang Chia

Bible in a Year:

REFLECT: What are the dangers of joining hands with those who would bring a conflict of interest to God’s work? How can you develop discernment?

PRAYER:

Loving Father, You know my need. Help me to be wise and discerning in knowing when to partner with others.
