THURSDAY, April 11

Psalms 133:1 Oh, how good and pleasant it is, when brethren live together in unity!

In a musical production, actors and musicians offer up many songs and spoken lines. Despite the diversity of instruments and vocal ranges, it is imperative that the acting company and orchestra all come together in harmony, melody, and action. In the same way, we too must learn to live in community as complementary partners and producers.

We are tethered to God and each other throughout our Christian journey. When we allow the unholy powers of the world to separate us, we are commanded to mend what is broken, seek reconciliation, and live in peace.

The children of Israel sing Psalm 133 as they make their way to Jerusalem for festival worship. They are not on solo journeys—they are a community traveling together, sharing a common purpose and path, striving toward a common goal. May we do and be the same.

MOVING FORWARD: How are you living into holy unity in your life right now?
