Jesus said to them:
"Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.(...) He who is not with me, is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters.
"When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.'
"Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first."
Jesus in this passage has been driving out demons. He describes the ongoing spiritual warfare which goes on within us as we make choices. The more we welcome God into our lives, the more we become aware of temptations luring us away from Him.
We ask the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us in our daily choices.
We make our prayer, through Christ, our Lord.
