sermon on the mount --taking sides

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven

What is it about us humans that we so love to take sides?

And why is it that we are so antagonized by people who don't take the same side that we take?

“Are you for us or are you for our advesaries?” Joshua asked the Unknown Soldier.

“No,” said the Soldier. “Now take off your sandals from your feet for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”

The kingdom of God had come to Joshua. Who was with him or who was against him now no longer mattered.

Jesus told us earlier that the poor in spirit, the meek, those that mourn, the peacemakers, the pure in heart, the persecuted were of His kingdom. May we be mindful of this as we find ourselves taking sides.
