The Danger of Division
Differing opinions are unavoidable and often lead to healthy conversations and wise decisions. But when “different” becomes “division,” the result is always destructive.
I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.1 Corinthians 1:10 ESV
In his letter to the church in Corinth, Paul passionately appealed for unity. He wasn’t attempting to force singularity of mind, but harmony of spirit.
God desires His church to be in unity, to walk in agreement. Scripture says: “The world will know we are Christians by our love for one another.”
One of the greatest testimonies a church, a family, or a marriage can have is a spirit of unity.
Father- help me to lay down my pride and value unity over selfishness. Amen!
