Devotion for August 23

1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV

“I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.”

Well, I picked a good one. How can we agree in a world of strife amidst issues that cause disagreement.

Paul is speaking here to the church: The brethren of Christ. The disagreements are over unimportant issues like hair length, who leads communion, etc. Paul wants all his church to get along but not sacrifice morality for immorality. We should go to one another and pray for peace amongst ourselves.

Satan loves division. So if anyone of you is in discord with another take an elder a with you and resolve your issues. Do not let anger grow. Seek peace.
