Harmony builds us up and draws us to the Lord, it helps us to cooperate with one another and it renews our minds and hearts so we can speak words of life.
“How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony! For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe.

Isn’t this an amazing thing? That if give and live in unity along with walking in obedience to God’s Holy Word, we can have the blessings of God upon us and speak those things into existence.
