Division Among the Disciples

James and John wanted something from Jesus that set them apart from the other disciples, whether the two realized it or not. Matthew wrote, “And when the ten heard it, they were greatly displeased with the two brothers” (Matthew 20:24).
Although Jesus was with them, they had problems and divided up, ten against two! However, that did not cause any of them, or any of the other people who were following Jesus, to decided to quit.
Problems will exist, even in the best churches. Do not let that discourage you and make you quit.
Be agreeable.
