How’s Your Harmony?
Posted: Wednesday, June 15
Have you ever worked on a project with a team that wasn’t in harmony? How did it go? Awhile back I was on a team that was trying to plan a surprise party for a friend. It was a great idea to bless our friend but we had a hard time being unified as a team. We all had different ideas and different ways that we thought things should be done. While we weren’t in harmony we couldn’t make any progress. We were at a complete standstill until we remembered that the goal that brought us together was trying to bless our friend. We had to come back to what we had in common to find our harmony. Once we did we were able to put together a very meaningful party for our friend.
The same thing happens in building the Kingdom of God. As believers we are all on a team together with the common goal of advancing God’s Kingdom. The problem comes in when we begin to have disunity within the team. We begin to separate because of different preferences and disagreements with other believers. It’s hard to continue making progress when there is no harmony. That’s why the Psalmist says that it is good and pleasant when God’s people live together in harmony. When we are unified we are able to accomplish amazing things for God!
