Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished! Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
Jesus brought division because some believe Him and some do not. Many families are split because of Him and their beliefs. Peace does not come, but division. Turn your eyes to the truth of Him and His faith then you will have peace in your heart and can bring peace to your family.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that others will find the peace that came to me when I finally saw and believed. Thank you for the grace of believing and seeing, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
