THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
It is only a few short weeks since Jesus was advising his disciples
to greet people with the words ‘Peace to this house!’ We certainly like
to associate Jesus more with peace than division. When Jesus later
appears to the disciples after his resurrection, his first words are
‘Peace be with you’. And now here he is talking about division!
At the time that Luke was writing his Gospel, the early Christian
community was experiencing division. Households were divided over what
to believe. It is not that Jesus was encouraging division; rather, not
everyone was ready to accept his teachings. Jesus remains a divisive
figure today. People either run towards him or run from him. Division is
a natural consequence of Jesus’ work, and those who follow him must be
willing to sacrifice everything.
This is a challenging Gospel for us. It’s almost as if Jesus is
asking us what we are willing to do in his name, if we are truly ablaze
with love for him. We may at times face ridicule or rejection from the
world. We may have to change the company we keep, or leave old ways of
life behind, in order to truly follow him. In this sense there may well
