Issue 580 – Faith and Prayer History

Why do we wait for tragedies to prompt us to look toward heaven? Why can’t we seek God and find greater unity before fear strikes us from without and within? One reason we should look heavenward to unite a divided world is because God sees unity as pleasant and precious. In Psalm 133:1 we find these words, ‘How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!‘  Why is unity so pleasant and precious? Unity helps believers give a positive example to the world, drawing others to embrace the walk of faith. This is indeed pleasant. Unity also encourages cooperation in a body of believers, enabling them to accomplish much more than they could if divided. This is indeed precious.
