Psalms 133:1-3 (ESV)
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity! 2 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! 3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.
The idea of family is different for everyone. There are some of us who had a rough family this could be because of addictions, abuse, neglect, etc. There are also a large number of families with step parents, adopted siblings, and most families have some deep wounds. These ideas about family are true for our earthly families but we have a second family. The family of God is our true family. There is a sense of love, acceptance, and grace in this family. The family of God is made up of many generations, many different backgrounds, educations, life styles. Yet somehow, God still tells us we are equal and we all have a part to play. The people of God are a community. The people of God are a family.
Q3 Even though our earthly families may not live together in unity the family of God does. What are some ways that the family of God can work towards better unity?
Q4 What are some ways you can be an active member in the family of God?
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
