53 ‘Father will be divided against son and son against father; mother against daughter
and daughter against mother; and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." (Luke 12:49-53 NLT)
If you have ever driven through the Rocky Mountains on your way to the West Coast, you should have crossed the Great Divide that indicates which direction water flows. Jesus is the Great Divide for people. Faith in Him decides the direction for our lives and where we will spend eternity.
Unfortunately families are sometimes divided over Jesus. Jesus wants our families to be united in faith. But when that does not happen, we need to give Jesus the First Place in our lives.
