Preserve The Sense of Unity and Togetherness (Noon)
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Hebrews 10:24 And let us take thought of how to spur one another on to love and good works,
After a day full of activities, the body comes to a rest. Then four organs start to argue with each other bitterly. Legs stated: “I’m the most important body parts! Without me, you all cannot move and go mobile.” Then hands answered: “Well, without me working and sustaining you, good luck to even move a muscle.” Face argued: “When a person meets another they never see other’s feet or hands. Always face. It suffices to say, I’m the most important organ ever.” After just listening to their endless debate, the stomach raised its voice: “Legs you may be the strongest among us, hands may be the most agile and face the fairest. But I’m the most important organ, ever. Without me, you cannot function normally. “
Legs, hands, and face were triggered. They finally agreed on one thing: they would starve the stomach. For days, not a meal enters the stomach. Slowly the whole body almost ceases to function. Legs could no longer support the whole body. Hands become less agile. And face lost its brilliance and become pale. They understand their grave mistake. A truce was declared, from then on they would work as a team.
God wants us to preserve this sense of unity and togetherness. He doesn’t want to see a cold heart and become exclusive, a common trait at the end of time, especially in this dire situation. Physical distancing could become spiritual distancing. He wants us to achieve glory and greatness as a team, not as an individual. Take care of each other, support your friends and neighbors. That’s all that He wants us to do.
God desires us to PRESERVE SENSE OF UNITY AND TOGETHERNESS.
1. Do you struggle to preserve this sense of unity and togetherness?
2. In your opinion, why does it happen?
3. What are you planning to do to restore it?
“Father, we are grateful because You always remind us how important it is to preserve our sense of unity and togetherness. We understand we cannot accomplish a thing if we are on our own. Give us Your spirit of unity. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
