The House Must Be Unified, Not Divided
Jesus explains to us that no kingdom, city or household will survive, flourish or grow if it destroys itself. We know this from the book of Matthew 12:25 when Jesus said "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and ever city or household divided against itself will not stand". This sort of self-destruction will lead to the demise of a marriage. Think about your marriage as the engine of the household. Sam and Vicki Ingrassia explain if the engine is not functioning any more, the marriage and the household will cease to move forward, and once the energy of a marriage is focused on dividing itself, it can't stand.
