No Place for Competition...

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity...It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion"-Psalms 133:1,3
God has purposed us with a plan! Each one so unique and individual. Our design and make up reveal His awesome creativity, His beauty and His perfect order. In this Psalm it sings the praise of Mount Hermon's high elevation overflow and run off working in unity with Zion to water it and produce life. He intricately designed nature to work in unity, how much more human beings?
Yet we can get caught up competing against one another when we are all working towards the same goal...this is out of order! We all serve different purposes, have different souls to reach and lives to touch. This kind of competition discredits His intricate design, His creativity and His unique perfect plan for each of us. Why not put on the bond of peace and encourage our brothers and sisters? Why not overflow, run off, exhort, encourage, and bring life to each other to become everything He has called us to be? Not of ourselves that we should boast in anything. The goal is exalting His Kingdom and bringing Him glory!
This world says compete but the Word says come together in unity...who are you going to listen to?
“Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.”- 1 Corinthians 1:10
