If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark 3:25)
Divorce is rampant in our land. The institution of marriage is in danger. Couples who do stay together are often little more than roommates; families are often just a group of people living in the same place. The root cause is sin. The fruit of that sin is division and strife. Husbands, wives and children have totally separate lives. There have different friends, interests and dreams. A family can live in the same house and never see each other. When the children are home they are in their rooms, talking on their phones, listening to their music or watching television. They seldom greet or say good-bye to each other. There is little conversation. If there are words spoken, that is all that they are, just words; seldom are complete sentences spoken. These are evidences of a house divided. These are sure signs of a house about to fall. This is a house that needs to change. Somebody must take charge. Someone must love enough to keep the house together.
