Bible: Matthew 10:32-40
Not Peace, but a Sword
10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring 3 peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace but a sword. 10:35 For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, 10:36 and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. 4
10:37 “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 10:38 And whoever does not take up his cross 5 and follow me is not worthy of me. 10:39 Whoever finds his life 6 will lose it, 7 and whoever loses his life because of me 8 will find it.
10:40 “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. 9
