United we stand

United we stand, divided we fall. The truth of this statement rang true in me the first time I heard it. I have to ask myself if there is anyway that I’m contributing to division. And if I am, how do I deal with that?

There’s another Scripture that says, “Pride comes before a fall” and I think my answer lies in this powerful statement. Strife is born out of pride. Love and peace are born out of humility. Humble yourself in the sight of the LORD and He will lift you up.

Mark 3:24-26

24 “A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse. 25 Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart.
