Recent experiences, in combination with the Lincoln movie has me thinking… Unity is a status achieved and maintained through battle. Unity never just happens. The Civil War was a Unity Fight. The fight for unity includes casualties. Groups that refuse to draw a line of Unity for fear of causing casualties will never have unity and actually cause greater casualties. Strange to think that unity is a product of partisanship. The day where 100% of all people in existence are in Unity is the day where everybody stands for nothing. It takes backbone to DRAW A LINE of unity. Unity is an act of division. The division sign is a dot divided by another dot. The division sign is one united group divided by another united group. Unity only happens through division/battle. Unity separates to gather. Only the courageous stand for unity. Draw your line and stand lovingly strong. Its a rare character trait today. Jesus said in Matthew 10:34, “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” In this Christmas season, do not forget that this “Prince of Peace” was the great Unifier! Man, he caused incredible division. What a Battle He fought for Unity. There were casualties. Are you like Him?
