Roman 16:17
Division has been so destructive throughout history. The division of countries, division of states within countries, divisions in companies, churches and even families – division causes destruction everywhere. Granted, sometime divisions are for the better, but for the most part they are not. In our scripture today, Paul is using the example of division within the church. Pope Francis puts it this way, “divisions between Christ’s followers are clearly contrary to His (Christ’s) will, as expressed in his prayer to the Father that all might be one, so that the world might believe (John 17:21) it was Christ‘s deep desire that His disciples remain united in His love. We must not be resigned to these divisions, but must join our prayer to that of Jesus in imploring, constant openness to dialogue and appreciation of the gifts of others among all his followers. In loving the Lord and sharing the riches of his love – he said – we will better see what unites us rather than what separates us.” Let us not be divided brethren we have a lot to accomplish together. God Loves Ya 😉
