“Any kingdom which is divided against itself is heading for ruin.”
Luke 11: 15-26
Jesus stated a simple truth in response to those who accused him of working with the devil in order to cast out devils. He said nothing can work against itself and thrive. If a house is divided it cannot last. The fact is disunity and disharmony are self-destructive.
The statement speaks to internal division wherever it is found. Internal division is hidden and destructive. No one sees when it is coming until it is too late. Families, communities, groups, workplaces, etc. will not last if they are undermined from within.
The same can be said of persons. Persons who are indecisive or vacillating do not hold up well. They tend to go with every passing breeze. A divided heart is just as destructive as a divided house or community.
Since God is a community within Himself and we are created in His image and likeness, we can say with absolute certainty that we are not created for division. We are created for community, harmony and for getting along.
