Daily Inspiration, December 10th

“My dear friends, as a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ, I beg you to get along with each other. Don’t take sides. Always try to agree in what you think.” (I Corinthians 1: 10)

If we are truly following Christ, we must necessarily have oneness of mind. Jesus taught and demonstrated unity, and that unity always being Love. We can’t be true believers and lay full claim to the power of Truth, if we do not seek to harmonize with one another.

This does not mean that one person’s opinion must be taken as law, and all others simply, tacitly, agree. What it does mean is that at the heart of all that we think and do, divine Love, God’s Word of Truth, remains our motive and our goal. As we align ourselves with God, not varying human opinions and ego, we naturally come into line with the Truth that is Love. We listen better and respond with more grace and goodness. We don’t look for battles, but seek peace in all things, and feel the rich rewards of doing so.

If we agree with God—agree as Jesus did that God was the one good, Mind, and Love—then we are in agreement with one another. Out of this Mind can flow forth only concord and not discord; unity rather than disagreement; peace rather than war.

We can do as Paul asked and be “dear friends” to one another, striving for harmony, unselfishness, kindness, and by doing so, sharing gratefully our natural abundance of joy.

  1. I try SO HARD to do this and I soooo appreciate this timely reminder. I just today posted something that I am working on… the difference between discussion and argument. Argument is stressing strongly your opinion, Discussion is seeking the right thought. It is like I feel that I have to right every wrong, comment on every offense against others, thereby offending the one that I contend with.

    I am getting better but the personal sense of indignation lies just under the surface, being revealed way too slowly. It reminds me of famous cellist Pablo Casals. Upon hearing that Pablo still spent hours practicing at the age of 92, a friend said, “I can’t believe a cellist as good as you still practices every day.” That wonderful musician, with all humility said, “Yes I do and you know, I think I am getting better.” Lord give me the wisdom and humility and patience of that dear man. And… YOU!!! Thank you Laura.
