Spreading God's Love Thru Prayer
"Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! or there the Lord commanded the blessing, life forevermore. Pslm 133:1-3
Bickering. Backbiting. Selfishness. Grudges. Fighting over things that don't matter with family and friends - even in the church.
Disagreements happen. Arguments are inevitable. But our calling from God is to oneness - to unity with brother and sisters in the Lord. Perhaps that is why David penned Psalm 133 for his many sons, to instruct them and encourage them to dwell together in harmony. His admonition goes beyond simply not quarreling, to a much deeper depth of relationship - delighting in one another.
God will give you windows of relationship restoration. Watch for them and, "as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith." Galatians 6:10. Let us press through the hard times together.
Lord, please make me an instrument of Your peace. In the unity of love and peace there is strength. Following the example of Christ Jesus, let me be His example to my fellowman. It is in His name I believe and pray that Thy will be done. Amen.
