Psalms 133:1 – “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.” (NASB)
It had lifted up in many places. I had gotten a call from a customer regarding the sidewalk leading up to their house. She said that the blocks had begun to fall apart from each other, so I went out to check it out. Sure enough, the concrete blocks were pulling away from each other and leaving large gaps where you could trip. They made the sidewalk unsafe. Today's verse speaks about how good and pleasant it is for brothers to dwell in unity, and I couldn't think how the sidewalk had pulled apart. Until I realized that there was no wire mesh installed to hold the concrete together so the blocks began to pull away from each other. For brothers to dwell in unity there needs to be a mesh that holds us together. I can't think of a better mesh than Jesus Christ, the glue that will hold us together in unity. Now that's good and pleasant. Just like the concrete, the key is whether or not we apply the "Mesh" in our lives. He can be the difference between holding us together in unity and falling apart. So are we applying the "Mesh" of Jesus Christ in our lives?
