2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be joined to unbelievers. What do right and wrong have in common? Can light and darkness be friends?
As we go through the process of repairing our relationships it is important we do not let those relationships compromise our relationship with God. Doing so may weaken our spiritual commitment and integrity and reduce our standards back to our old way of thinking and acting.
God wants others to see what He is doing in and through our lives and He wants to use that to prompt them to consider change. They won’t if we lower ourselves to their standards instead of raising our attitudes and behaviours to His and sticking to them.
In recovery we need to avoid people and places that compromise our recovery.
- When are you willing to compromise what you have learned in recovery to save a relationship?
Prayer: Lord help me to stay true to what You have taught me.
