“…I plead with you, that you all…there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10
You readers’ friends of this devotion! Do you have envy, fretting in your heart? Do you have divisions in your family? Are you without speaking in your family? Are without forgiving anybody? These are the divisions as the works of flesh (Galatians 5:20). Today let us see the cause for divisions and solvent for divisions.
The reason for the division: The pride is the cause for all quarrels. Do you have pride after your caste, community, job, and beauty and richness wealth? If anybody says against us do we get angry, emotionally violent? Do we have non-conceding co-operation, non-compromising, non-set right spirit, non-cooperate mind? To ask forgiveness, to forgive and voluntarily willing to speak, to acknowledge the self-mistakes do we have mind? If you don’t have so, you are proud! Do you have anyone of these things? Just check it.
Ways to solve divisions: First, let us confess our wrongs to God, not others faults/wrongs, but confess our wrongs. Others might have done wrongs, but we must not forget that we also do wrongs. I have not done wrong and there is no wrong in me. What he has done is wrong and unrighteous. If we say so what will be the answer to us by God? “Hypocrite, first remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Yes! Whoever may be victim first, God commands you to, go to your brother. Secondly, we must go to men and confess our wrongs. Without hardening your heart will you go in advance and confess your wrongs and set right with them?
Dear ones! Let us obey to, God given new law, “that you love one another as I have loved you.” Let us forsake and cast out all divisions, quarrels from us and live as witness for God.
