The Scriptures we are studying today were spontaneously chosen only after I sat down to write this study. Since last Monday, I had every intention of writing about Psalm 46 and spent time researching the meaning of that magnificent "song" for these troubled times. Such a last-minute switch-out has never happened in the 42 previous volumes. Thus, my interpretation is that I am "supposed" to write about this famous phrase of scripture, which happens to be a political cliché, usually attributed to Abraham Lincoln:
"A house divided against itself cannot stand."
