A Divided House….

There’s always a common thread of truth in every disagreement. In lieu of focusing merely on your truth try to see the truth in the other person’s disposition. In doing so, you will increase the chances of landing on mutual understanding. In Luke 11:17, Mark 3:25, and Matthew 12:25 we learn that a house divided can’t stand. Now then, in each of these passages Jesus was responding to the Pharisees’ accusations that Jesus was using Satan’s power to cast out demons. However, this truth is eternally universal. Rhetorically speaking; who is the creator of division? If you look hard enough you can see the slithering path of the devil’s hand in just about every argument. God is the Father/Author of unity and as such, He commands unity among believers because, once conflict enters the midst of any assembly or entity, productivity and usefulness inevitably grind to a halt and the whole organization is weakened and becomes vulnerable to attack. In contrast, Jesus Christ is building His church (Matthew 16:18). His “house” will stand; “His kingdom will not be destroyed, / His dominion will never end” (Daniel 6:26).
