Luke 12:51 ” Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.”

What Jesus was saying here is that complete dedication to Him may sometimes bring about rejection even from one’s immediate family…or as He said in Matthew 10:37, “Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me…” Our love, trust, and faith in the Lord needs to always be at the top. But when we allow ourselves to indulge others to continue in ungodly beliefs and/or practices, and when we choose to turn a blind eye in order to keep peace in the family, we’re taking God off the throne and placing the person there instead. That’s because when we promote tolerance and inclusivity at all cost…we end up compromising our beliefs for white-washed harmony.
