Jesus said, "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law--a man's enemies will be the members of his own household. Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." ----------------I know many of you are going through this struggle with your family. Your faith has caused a commotion that now places a target upon your back, it will separate you from your most valued companions, there will be a sword between those who belong to God and those who are far off, Jesus said, this will happen in your own house. Mothers won't understand their daughters, Fathers will be against their sons, why? On the account of Jesus. Take heart, because it is God who brings the sword, though we may lose many along the way, we may gain some too, but surely, we won't lose God. We must love God above all else, that includes family; family cannot become the idol that we sacrifice God on the alter for. We must choose God first, He is our first love, and because this is true, many will be against you. Be encouraged you are not alone, Jesus says, "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life."
