Dads love it when their kids get along.

It’s especially sweet to a father when his kids not only get along, but they act like buddies who like doing things together.

That’s how it was with my Jessica and Melissa when they were kids.

During their adolescence, there were some rough spots in this regard.

Just like in most homes.

But now they’re buddies who really enjoy their times together, although there aren’t enough of them.

Our Abba Father is the author of this yearning, of course, since He created the idea and mechanism for parenting.

I was reminded of His desire in this respect while reading today from the One-Year Bible.

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1)

God loves unity. The people involved love it. The observing world loves it, since it’s not commonly observed in everyday life.

Satan hates it, of course, and tries every trick in his book to stir up trouble.

Please be watchful for those devilish influences.

Forgive quickly.

Reject gossip.

Help generously.

Consider what makes God and others happy rather than your pride.

We all know that smiles rooted in humility, unselfishness and positive, shared purposes are more enduring and refreshing.

Whatever there is in your heart or mind that is hindering unity, please lay it aside.

Life will be so much better to have a friend or loved one at your side rather than that unity-busting grudge or inflated ego or possession.

As always, I love you
