Matthew:10:34-37 - The Message.

Matthew:10:34-37 speaks Jesus' words to his disciples, them that following him will bring division. He says, "Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's foes will be those of his household."

Jesus tells us that following Him will bring turmoil within our families and the outside world. In ancient times, the idea of a single man teaching and proclaiming His own beliefs, especially regarding religious doctrine, was seen as an act of rebellion and defiance. So likewise, Jesus is warning us that by following Him, we will face opposition from those around us who may disagree with our beliefs.

Using references from Scripture such as 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, which speaks of the importance of love, it is clear that Jesus does not intend for His words to bring about violence or anger but rather an understanding and acceptance of difference. He wants us to show love and forgiveness towards those who disagree with us, even if they are from our own families. We should remember that although we may face opposition because of our Faith, staying true to ourselves and what we believe in is worth it.

Jesus' words of warning can still be applied to our lives today. We must remember that standing up for our beliefs can often be difficult, especially when those around us disagree. Nevertheless, we must strive to stay true to our convictions and show love and understanding toward those who oppose us. In this way, we can honor the words of Jesus in Matthew 10:34-37.
