People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:35


Mt 10:35 I am come to set a man at variance against his father. This was not the Savior's object, but the effect. The conversion of individual members of the family would cause variance. In nearly all quarrels, except those about religion, the members of the same family stand together, but in religious feuds the family circle is often broken and its parts arrayed against each other.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • Rhonda Dotson
    If a person strives for his life in the world, he will find that the world does not offer "the life", and will lose it. But if he gives up searching the world for his life for the sake of Jesus Christ, he will find 'the life". Because The Life is in Jesus Christ.

    HE THAT FINDETH HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT AND HE SHALL LOOSES HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE WILL FIND IT. OBEDIENCE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THAN SACRIFICE IF WE FOLLOW JESUS JEHOVA JIREH THE LORD MY PROVIDER SHALOM AMEN

    I don't care what it takes I will follow and trust in God for the rest of my life on this earth even if people try to kill me I will still stand strong cause he has been too good to me to just turn my back on him

    To:A Disciple, I agree with Emanuel Fernandes. There is nothing wrong with watching sports as long as it does not keep you from God. If you are watching when you should be at church, THAT'S WHEN YOU SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED. By the way "A DISCIPLE" are you a Catholic or what?
