So many people today desire God’s blessing in their lives which is great! However, do you know that He commands blessing on us when we are at peace with the people around us? As believers, we are called to work together in unity so that we can fulfill God’s purposes. There is unity in strength and this is a positive attitude God wants from us. We are called to serve one another in love and serve together in the house of the Lord. Is there someone in your life that you don’t quite get along with? The Bible says to pray for that person and go out of your way to be a blessing to them. It isn’t easy, but the reward is eternal. His blessing is everlasting.
Make the decision today to live in peace and unity with the people around you. Look for common ground. Even if the only thing you can agree on is Jesus, focus on that! Focus on the love you have for God and for seeing people come to know Him. Live together in unity and open the door to see His blessing in every area of your life. Everyone irrespective of their religion has been enjoined to live in peace; for peace brings numerous blessing such as growth, success, prosperity, etc in a community, home, workplace, etc .Study these Scriptures 1Cor 7:15; Jn16;33 & Mk 9:30.
