How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!
It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.
It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the Lord ordained his blessing, life forevermore.
Food For Thought:
The theme that emerges from this Psalm is living together in unity. What a rare sight these days to see people or communities living together in unity. I think this is what God envisions for us, but we have such difficulty with this one. Think about a situation that needs unifying in your area that you could help bring some peace to.
Creator God, you made the world in beauty, and restore all things in glory through the victory of Jesus Christ. We pray that, wherever your image is still disfigured by poverty, sickness, selfishness, war and greed, the new creation in Jesus Christ may appear in justice, love, and peace, to the glory of your name. Amen.
