I was stumped on what to write tonight. Actually, I’ve been running on empty the last several days. I guess I’ve been preoccupied with several things this week. Tonight, I decided to go through my 20,000 pics on my phone to see if something might strike up a post. That’s when I came across this picture. A perfect visual to describe the condition of today’s world. Division is in our families, our schools and communities, and our nation. Even the whole world is divided.
What does God say about division?
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.
Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?
One of my absolute favorite verses…
1 Corinthians 14:33
For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.
Is our world in a confused state? Is there peace among us? Or is there division? Are people turning on each other? Can we distinguish between truth and falsity? Just know that this madness didn’t come from God.
If there is ever a time to be united with one another and with God, it is now.
