Titus 3:10

Titus 3:10…”Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.” Those who believe in God, must make it their care to maintain good works, to seek opportunities for doing them, being influenced by love and gratitude. Unity should be around the gospel, and God’s word. Distinctions and controversies which are not central to the Christian faith should be avoided, and this verse outlines how we should deal with divisiveness. If we are hung up on the style of music, the color of the carpet, or the coffee being served before the service, then we’ve missed the point of the church. We are to put aside these small preferences for the sake of unity, and take care to flee from those in our church who are consistently marked by this kind of pettiness.
