May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

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 came and divided families and nations. Those who heard the truth separated themselves from those who refused to believe Him. And it still happens today, but more people are refusing to believe in Him, trying to change what He said and twist His truth. Which truth do you believe?

 Prayer: Heavenly Father, your truth is all I want to hear and follow. You are the path of life. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you praise, Amen!

Lord, come to my aid!
