Not dealing with mistakes is making another mistake. It will always lead to another mistake. It is like lying… one lie, two lies, and three lies to cover the first lie. We cannot fight against our intimate community or relationships without great consequence to ourselves. If we fight with our mates, our children, our church family, our business family, our media connections, or go into the pits and fits of politics and religion… we get burned and destroyed. We become divided.
Jesus said, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.” (Mark 3:24-26)
This is an African Proverb:
“A fight between grasshoppers is a joy to the crow.”
I’m headed to the other side of the Pond to have some Cuban Coffee and a sleeve of Maria’s Cookies and just stare into the Pond.
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.” Jesus
