Day 18: Race relations and unity in our community

How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!  For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe.  Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion.  And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing, even life everlasting. -Psalm 133:1-3 (NLT)


Reflect |  According to Webster’s, harmony is the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords and chord progressions having a pleasing effect.  Our community is a diversity of cultures, races, and beliefs, but when we work together, even though we have many differences, it’s like musical harmony, when many sounds together produce a pleasant symphony.


Pray | Father in Heaven, breathe into the hearts of the people of our community to learn the benefit of working together.  Let us focus on the reality of our similar desires of peace and harmony, rather than the trivialities of our differences.  Open our eyes to see that Your blessing is pronounced as we turn away from what divides us.  Let us become like-minded, being one in spirit and in purpose.  Amen!
