“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”
Matthew 12:25 NIV
The reality is the 6 Billion people on earth are so interconnected that this truth applies to us as an entire race.
We can no longer ignore the way our actions impact those in distant lands – because they’re not so distant anymore. Their future is tied to our future and if we’re divided against each other we will be ruined.
If our actions, attitudes, business plans and lifestyles achieve our gain at another person’s loss, then what we’re doing is not sustainable, healthy or honouring the humanity of those we live with. As the human community we’re divided against ourselves, and like that we cannot stand.
