You may not realize how important it is to make good alliances. Think about it. A corrupt business partner could send you to jail. A close friend who likes to bar-hop could cause you to lower your standards. An unsaved husband could divide your family. Jehoshaphat made a poor choice in allying himself with Ahab—a well-known evil king. Who are your business partners, closest friends and mentors? Take care that your most important relationships draw you closer to God instead of pulling you away from him.
