Division Is Not Addition

“Who will we serve?” demanded the masses looking for true leadership.

I am of the blue team and never do we miss gathering together!

I am of the red team and we do the most good!

The green yelled they were most righteous and protected all!

Amongst the masses stood a small child listening to all the rhetoric, hoping to hear a real voice of truth. Instead he found himself lost in the division and wondered why if they were all so good didn’t they join as one?

Mark 9:36-41 Then he put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me. John said to Jesus, “Teacher, we saw someone using your name to cast out demons, but we told him to stop because he wasn’t in our group.” “Don’t stop him!” Jesus said. “No one who performs a miracle in my name will soon be able to speak evil of me. Anyone who is not against us is for us. If anyone gives you even a cup of water because you belong to the Messiah, I tell you the truth, that person will surely be rewarded.
