“I did not come into the world so that everyone will agree with each other. No, I tell you. I came to put people against one another. From now on, because of me, Five people in a family will be against each other. Two will be against the other three. Three of them will be against the other two.” Words of Jesus

‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:51-52‬ ‭EASY‬‬

Many of us grew up looking at and attempting to re-create a Norman Rockwell Christmas: the family happily gathered around the table, enjoying just being with each other, but reality often looks more like Christmas Vacation, with quirky personalities and calamity abounding.

Jesus doesn’t promise everyone will get along on this earth. Following Christ can mean not only sharp divisions in how we view social, political, and moral issues, but also in how we treat others who may disagree. Apostle Paul offers up sound instruction in these challenging times:

“If possible, on your part, live at peace with everyone.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:18‬ ‭HCSB‬‬🚦
