An old song (like me) but a relevant message…it is at the end of this post if you want some old school mix….. I love it…

There are a lot of reasons or maybe excuses why we can’t be friends.  Most are just baseless.  The scriptures talk about us getting along.  Psalms 133:1says that it is good and pleasant when we can get along and live together in unity.  It specifically mentions the brethren…. the Christians…believers, church goers…..church folks… the dressed up, raising our hands, tongue talking or just bible believing folks….  Why can’t we be friends?   

The bible says that unity is the way of God.  Not my way, your way,….but God’s way….as based on our leaders.  The scriptures go on to say that it (unity) is like precious oil.    Well, we all know that oil is expensive but precious oil….well, it is really expensive.  So, the scriptures equate unity with the value of precious oil.  I would say that unity is important to God. 

So,….what is between me and you?  What is between you and God?  What is between us and our church leadership?  You might be thinking,….well, you are a preacher and this is self serving garbage..  But I struggle with this too!  I want to second guess things too, to question, to wonder why….and to not pray enough for my leadership….yes, I have leadership that I am ordained under. 

Why can’t we be friends?  It is us.  May we pray for each other and for unity in our churches.    And….if you want to chill with the 3 minute video on why can’t we be friends….just sit back and enjoy. 

 louie….
