    LUKE 12:52 FOR FROM HENCEFORTH THERE SHALL BE BE FIVE IN ONE HOUSE DIVIDED THREE AGAINST TWO AND TWO AGAINST THREE --- MATTHEW 10:35 FOR I AM COME TO SET A MAN AT VARIANCE AGAINST HIS FATHER AND THE DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER AND THE DAUGHTER IN LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER IN LAW

    I just noticed how God called to brothers. Simon and Andrew were brothers and James and John were brothers. I can see God creating a deeper love when It involves family. Maybe even an ability to sustain a follower if there family is also involved. Amazing food for thought.
