Psalms 133: Work Together for God


Psalms 133 is pretty self-explanatory. It is only three verses long, so I will give you all three of them.

Psa 133:1  A Song of Ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!

Psa 133:2  It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes!

Psa 133:3  It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.

It is a good thing when Christians get along. That should be pretty obvious, but it is kind of a shame that there are many people who need to listen to this advice much more closely.

I certainly understand that there are some people we might just have a hard time getting along with. Personalities don’t always fit together well, and it might feel natural to disagree with whatever they say just because you don’t like them.

However, when the Bible tells you that it is good for all brother to get along and be united, you know that it is something that we ought to do, but you might not know why.

I think a big reason that we need to get along is because we are all part of one body, and we all bring something different to the table. If you read 1 Corinthians 12, you can read about this more in depth, but the point is that we all have different talents and gifts that complement those of other people.

We might not agree on every little point of doctrine, and we certainly might have personalities that don’t fit together very well. However, as Christians, we are called to work together for the glory of God. Of course, we are still allowed to disagree at times, but remember that it is a good thing when we all work together to advance the kingdom of God.
