Psalm 133 – Unity is Good
Unity is good and pleasant. Disunity and conflict are destructive and unpleasant. Unity is a spiritual blessing, and it refreshes and sustains God's people. It is also up to each individual member to promote and guard the unity of the church and not stir up unnecessary conflict. The Apostle Paul instructed the church at Philippi to help a couple of Christian women overcome their conflict that was affecting the church (Philippians 4:2). Unity is so important that deacons were established to guard the unity of the church by serving the physical and spiritual needs of the members (Acts 6). If a church is to be effective at reaching people in its community, the leaders and members must promote unity. Disunity and conflict are a bad witness and counterproductive to reaching people.
