Unity (Summer Edition)
In so many words, Jay Weatherill said, “We can’t get unity by ignoring the questions we must face.” It is easy for me to overlook the issues that I hate. I rather not deal with the hurt, pain and stress of trying to work through the difficulties. So, I find it easier to ignore and avoid the real issues with things I like. But here is the problem, if I desire unity or a flow of success in my life, I must address the tough questions of why and what’s really going on. Unity is essential to having success!
A healthy body is an example of true unity. Each organ and cell must know why they exist and carry out its designated function successfully every time. When something is off in our bodies we know it because we feel different and our bodies are unable to perform at its peak. In our lives we face a similar connection; we can't perform at our peak when we are not clearly united with our purposes and reasons for doing what we do. Ignoring and avoiding the issues is a kind of sickness that wants to bring chaos to the body. You and I can stop this sickness by confronting our issues and dealing with the consequences. It might take time and not feel good but what else do we have? What other choice do we have to improve? Clearing up issues to have unity throughout life is worth the effort.
I challenge you this week to analyze what’s being ignored in your life. What changes do you need to make about some real issues? The medicine of truth and love can do wonders to help unify.
