Together we stand - Divided we fall

DAY 225

Congress is in the free fall of ironing out the country's future. We've all heard the saying - Together we stand - Divided we fall.

Does that mean we must compromise? Will a compromised congress stand?

Not sure, I am pondering.

Mark 3:25
And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Found this verse, more hmm

Genesis 49:6
O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

Ephesians 4:3
Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Unity for unity sake is not always good. Think Tower of Babel. Think of mobs who destroy.

There are many more verses on fight than unity. (I found 3 on unity)

1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

*** Didn't find the word compromise in the Bible. there is reason together - Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Listen to the Lord, lean not on your own understanding, and let Him settle issues in your heart. The enemy is crafty and deceptive, compromise his valued tool. Be wise. And do as the Lord would have you do, believing that HE is above all and will do His perfect will over us and our land.

And pray for our country.


  1. Excellent post! Your scripture digging really sets a great tone.

  2. Yes, Jesus even said *He* would cause division in a family. Unity is a great thing, but only up to a point.
