Today in church we heard talks on unity and making decisions.
Recently I listened to a talk that spoke about unity and diversity. The speaker brought up the thought that we need both unity and diversity to continue to grow as a society.
Unity doesn’t mean we all think and do the same thing. Unity means we work together, utilizing our differences, to become better overall.
Recently our country seems to be struggling with a case of divisiveness. Those with the loudest voices are telling us that we must hate those we disagree with.
But you and I have the choice to decide for ourselves how we respond, how we act, and how we treat others.
The Bible says: “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise” (Luke 6:31).
It is said that each of us can make up to 35,000 decisions each day. Some of those decisions carry more weight than others, but each decision can lead us in one direction or another.
Rather than spending our decision time tearing others down, let’s spend our time making decisions that help, uplift, and strengthen others.
There may be things we can’t control. But we can control ourselves.
We can decide how we react and how we treat others.
Let’s all make the decision to have more unity, celebrate our differences, love others, and work together for stronger families, nation, and world.
Let’s stand united as children of God!
