This month I am focusing on the topic of Unity with my children.
When I hear the news, my heart breaks over the endless number of things that divide us, such as culture, race, politics, and money. I may not fight on the front lines, or blog thought provoking words like a wise woman I know but I am teaching the next generation, namely my kids, what it means to let go of pride and cultivate compassion for the sake of unity.
During the days of the early church, Paul admonishes believers, both Jew and Gentile, to get along. He tells them to get rid of all hard feelings, anger, and rage; to stop all fighting and lying (Ephesians 4:31). Rather, he encouraged them to aim for restoration, to comfort one another, agree with one another, and live in peace (2 Corinthians 13:11). That’s easier said than done. However, I believe if it wasn't possible, he wouldn't have told us to not have divisions among ourselves, but to be united in the same mind and the same judgment. (1 Corinthians 1:10). We can begin by eliminating pride and place value on others, especially those that are different from us (Romans 12:16).
