07/11/23 Unity

READING: Psalms 120-136

Dwelling together in unity. 

That doesn’t always happen in the church.

In fact, I’ve seen enough “church fights” over the years that you almost come to expect that every church will divide at some point. I’ve even written blog posts about reasons church pain is so painful, and it was experience working with broken churches that allowed me to write that material. 

On the other hand . . . genuine unity may be more rare than it should be, but it’s sweet when it does occur. Indeed, it’s “delightfully good” (Psa 133:1) when God-followers dwell together. It’s hard to put into words the joy of relating without divisiveness to brothers and sisters God has placed in our lives. Our Creator somehow takes the many and makes us one. 

Today, are you one who unites or one who divides? I pray it’s the former—and that you get great delight out of that role. 

PERSONAL REFLECTION: Which one are you?   

DAILY PRAYER: “God, remind me daily about the beauty of unity.” 

TOMORROW’S READING: Psalms 137-149
