Lucy had a new product and a need for significant cash. Some investors tempted her with funding, but she feared partnering with people who don't share her faith and her passion for generosity.
After prayer and counsel she's now exploring a new option that has greater possibilities and still allows her to walk out her faith.
In 2 Chronicles 20 King Jehoshaphat partnered with a king who didn't share his faith. In verse 37 God proclaimed, "Because you have made an alliance with Ahaziah, the Lord will destroy what you have made. The ships were wrecked and were not able to set sail to trade."
I speak regularly to business people who have had their "ships wrecked" by being unequally yoked. If faced with a similar choice, pray for God's solution.
