Do you want to be in concert?
Concert according to the definition that is in “agreement in design or plan; combined action; harmony or accord.” Unified. Harmonized. Working together for the betterment of one thing or somethings.
According to todays devotional, this is, “the Lord’s plan for us as His children through faith in Jesus Christ.”
“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves” (Romans 12:10). The goal [in the body of Christ] is cooperation, not competition.”
“In a sense, we are “on stage” before a watching and listening world every day. There are no soloists in God’s concert band, but every instrument is essential. The music is best when we each play our part in unity with others.”
There are some of us, like myself, that desire to be in concert not just with our families, but also with our friends, spouse, and possibly our coworkers. Like I’ve written before, this positivity, this likeness, is something we all desire whether we are in a space of positivity now or not, we all know that life is greatly enjoyable when we have this state of mind and when we live in this state of mind.
The Bible does say to live at leace with all men, but we know not all men like to have peace. Sad as it is, some people like to bicker and fight and be at odds. This is not necessary in life. Yet some people CHOOSE to live like this. Why? Because of their own preferences, their own LIKES and DISLIKES. We cannot all have things the way that we would want them, it is the same for the life of our children and friends.
Readers, let’s keep the peace. Not just in this virtual reality, but in our very real lives. The lives we have when we are not looking or interacting on or through a screen.
God is real, love Him.
