“Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition...”
We all crave a sense of belonging. It is our nature. BUT division is the enemy of unity.
People have labeled since the beginning of time; religions, races, society, education, families, appearances, etc. But NOT all labels are good. Not all lines that are drawn are right. You must discern what is trying to being imposed on you; your own bias or that of another? Labels on people and lines that are drawn are a result of seeing with your eyes and not your heart.
Don’t be quick to believe what you hear from others instead draw your own conclusions on people from the heart.
- A divisive man/woman acts out of their own pain, hurt. Hurting people hurt people.
- A divisive man/woman sees themselves as the victim instead of the victor.
- A divisive man/woman is selfish not self-less.
- A divisive man/woman cuts not only with words, but their actions to the heart
A believer doesn’t acknowledge the drawn lines and labels of the world. They unite the with their sincere words and heart-felt actions.
You reject not the divisive man through hate; but for your own sakes, for the guarding of your hearts and minds, for the guarding and keeping of peace and love.
Divisiveness is a cancer that spreads like wildfire and in the end you don’t want to be on its bandwagon. For the label of a divisive man/woman leaves a bad scar that is difficult to erase.
Don’t be known as divisive! Unite, be a light, and ALWAYS find and accentuate the positive!
