In Matthew 12:25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.” Jesus speaks plainly about the importance of unity in this verse of scripture without even mentioning the word. What he does mention is the word that comes against unity and that is division. Many today are divided in their families, marriages, cities, and nation and at times even in the church. John and Pat remind us not to be ignorant of the enemy’s lies and schemes to bring in a wedge to divide. He uses tools like offense, pride, jealousy, and envy to do his dirty work. They continue to share that our focal point for unity should always be humility, forgiveness, and love.
