THE BLESSINGS OF UNITY
There is a blessing of unity. Unity does not mean that we all think alike or act the same. It does mean that we are bound together by the love of God. We are not clones and we have our own unique personalities. Yet, God has a way of bringing us together as His family. The love of God can unite us across racial, economic, faith and educational lines. How wonderful it is when God’s people come together and unite their hearts in love. Psalm 133:1 is a wonderful psalm.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”
“Brethren” may refer to members of the same family and perhaps traveling through different cultures. The writer may be thinking of one nation without schisms or robbery. Referencing Aaron’s beard, the psalmist emphasizes sacred oil as a consecration of the High Priest. The one-hundred-thirty-third psalm only has three verses. Read these three verses and glean from them the blessings of unity. If there was ever a time when we needed the message for believers to unite, it is now. We have entirely too much division and too much competition in the family of God. Let us seek to receive the blessing of unity.
Psalm 133:1 (KJV)
