"These five fingers," says Lucy. "Individually they're nothing but when I curl them together like this into a single unit, they form a weapon that is terrible to behold."
"Which channel do you want?" asks Linus. Turning away, he looks at his fingers and says, "Why can't you guys get organized like that?"
There is a lot to be said for unity, working together for the cause of Christ. God accomplishes great things for the Kingdom when the people of God look to Him as One people. In the scripture there is a transition of power from King David to King Solomon, and the common theme is unity: All the people praised, all the people partied, David and Solomon are together, the leaders are all in agreement. The people of God are created to worship the Lord, to serve the Lord, to love the Lord, as ONE. Read through today’s scripture and you cannot miss the unity of the people.
~ Unity begins with each person desiring unity. 1 Chron. 29:20 READ. David is handing his kingship to his son Solomon. David desire the unity of the people. He could have fought to keep all power to the end, but he looks to God and sees the common good greater than his own power. There is a time when WE is more important than ME… Unity begins with each person looking for the good of the whole.
