“Don’t Let ’em Ride, They Might Want to Drive”

“Don’t rush! We’ve got to be careful who we get with, who we welcome in our circle, our homes, and our hearts. Let’s not fall for those who might cause us to fall.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NLT) – (14) “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?”

“This morning my day started listening to one of my favorite gospel songs, “Shake the Devil Off” from the wonderful Sister Dorothy Norwood out of the ATL. Man, that tune was timely as I took in some good stuff from 2 Corinthians this morning. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had to shake a few folks off over the years and the scriptures this morning are a good reminder that we’ve got to remember that everyone we meet is not going to line up with the plan and purpose God has for our life. We can’t rush into relationships just because we’re tired of being single and we can’t keep folks around us who don’t put equal value in family, spirituality, and professionalism. Let’s choose carefully those we open up our home to, our hearts to, and those we choose to fellowship with. Think of it like this – What happens when we try to bring together light with darkness? What happens is the darkness picks up and is nowhere to be found because they’re not compatible! And some people are the same way. We’ve got to be careful spending too much of our life around people who don’t share our same values. It’s just like Sister Norwood sings about the devil, “Don’t let him ride, he might want to drive!” – #ToddCPittman
