“Husband and Wife”

A quarrelsome husband and wife sat before the open fireplace. They lived, or existed, at counter purposes with each other. Sleeping peaceably on either side of the fireplace were two cats. The husband said, “Why can’t we live in peace with each other like the cats?” The wife replied, “Just tie the tails of those cats together, and fling them over a clothesline, and see what happens!” Two can’t walk together except they be in agreement. Christians walking separately can walk peaceably with Christ in their hearts and with love and good will for everybody. Spirit-filled Christians can agree to disagree without strife and ill-will, their prayer being, ‘Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity” (Eph. 6:24).
