// A house Divided Cannot Stand
The struggle with unity is not something unique or new. It was a struggle since the inception of the church. There was a cultural disunity when the Hebrew widows were fed and the Greek widows were neglected in the early church. There was a clash in preferences in Romans 14 when some wanted to worship God on Sunday and others on Saturday, while others wanted to eat only vegetables and the others everything. We see a personality preference amongst the Corinthians when some said they were of Apollos, and others of Paul, while others of Cephas, etc. Being in the same church doesn't signify unity like eleven soccer players form a soccer team. There are 5 attributes we must guard against that could cause disunity amongst a congregation - 1) Making everything about you: Selfishness, 2) Fighting over secondary petty things, 3) Gossip, 4) Refusing to forgive, 5) Taking our eyes off Jesus. May a united church bring healing to a divided land, for by our genuine love for one another will the world know that we are His disciples indeed.
