#286: A House Divided Cannot Stand


house divided cannot stand

Never before, in my lifetime, have I seen our nation – or the world – so divided, so anxious, so completely hell-bent on perpetuating hatred, bigotry, and partisan pontification.

We are faced with one of the great dilemmas in human history. This level of divisiveness and tension has the potential to destroy life as we know it.

What will we do?

What can we do?

How do we stop the bleeding, and begin the healing?

I want to tackle this on today’s program, because here is what I know: A House Divided Cannot Stand.

 Feature Presentation: 

This topic is a heavy one, and to provide a noteworthy, detailed summary would not serve any justice to the content covered – but I want you to have talking points from this episode.

Over the last few years or so, our world has become increasingly divided, if not toxic.

As the ancient scriptures predicted, we are seeing:

  • Brother against brother
  • Nation against nation
  • Race against race
  • Gender wars
  • Political parties against political parties
  • Generational gaps and conflicts
  • Ideologies and doctrines creating separation and strife
  • Church groups reviling other church groups
  • And so on

Are you familiar with the story of Abraham Lincoln’s address? (Discussed in episode)

A house divided against itself, CANNOT STAND.

So what is the alternative? Unity? Uniformity? Political correctness? Moral compromise?

The Problems:

  • Satan – steal, kill, destroy
  • Media, Powers, Systems of this world
  • The strategy: divide and conquer
  • Constant barrage of programming and digital engagement
  • Hatred, bigotry, an absence of God’s love

The Solution:

  • Righteousness exalts a nation
  • Perfect love casts out all fear
  • The power of kindness and love
  • YOU!
  • Your leadership

Influencer’s Challenge:

So how do we break free from this terrible killer?

  • Pray for our nation
  • Lead by example
  • Refuse to participate in arguments or discussions with hate
  • Show love, grace, and deference to others
  • Be agents of peace, love, and reconciliation

This is not the time to shrink back in fear or anxiety, it is the time to show our leadership, our love, and our Lord.

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …
