Unity #abcblogging

Unity - this is a hard one.  I've seen so many families drift away because they didn't share the same beliefs.  It happens in churches too.  I think we are all a bit selfish to believe that everyone will live exactly the way we do.  To think the way we do.  To react the way we do. Our flesh tells us to do what feels good to us and what we want but that isn't what the bible says. 

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. - Proverbs 14:12

Maybe our thoughts are:

how could they still be doing that 


how could she say that

but we forget that Jesus has brought us to our current state of maturity.  Perhaps when you were 20 you still said some of those same things.  Maybe your still doing something that a more mature Saint in Christ thinks you should have learned by now. Perhaps you always say the wrong thing - put your foot in your mouth?

What does the bible say about unity?

 Finally, [be ye] all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, [be] pitiful, [be] courteous - 1 Peter 3:8

When we show that compassion and courtesy we are showing love.  By having these traits we will naturally flow to being all of one mind.

Which leads me to another verse:

 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, [being] of one accord, of one mind. - Philippians 2:2

As you can see we are to strive to be likeminded and having the same love.  I believe that is talking about working towards unity in Jesus.
