A division occurred

March 12, 2016 6:00 am


„Others said, ‚This is the Christ.’ But others said, ‚The Christ will not come from Galilee, will he? Does not Scripture say that the Christ will be of David’s family and come from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?’ So a division occurred in the crowd because of him.” (JN 7: 41-43)

We prefer to be in good relationships with others rather than being divided. Conflicts, divisions and misunderstandings are generally difficult to accept, and we don’t like them. Different opinions („but others said”) about Jesus came from ignorance or bad will and eyes closed to truth (“Have you also been deceived?”). „A generous heart” always helps and opens our eyes to the truth.

„Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.”
