Continued rise of strife among family

There is a disturbing trend in our society today that was predicted in the Bible over 2,000 years ago. It’s the continued rise of strife among family and friends that Jesus said would be a sign of his coming.

Families are in conflict — not talking to each other, holding resentment. Matthew 24:16 says “And then shall many be offended and shall betray one another and hate one another.” Jesus speaks of this family division in Luke 12:51-53.

Beware of falling into this trap for the Bible says “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses” (Matt. 11:26).

I can’t make somebody forgive me, but I can stop myself from carrying unforgiveness in my heart that will send me to hell.

Don’t be a “hater,” because if you take that to your grave, God will surely make you answer for your actions.
