Psalm 133 – Brothers United

It is a beautiful thing to see. Brothers together in harmony. 

I love it when I see it. Brothers in a band making beautiful music that blesses others because they compliment each other so well. Brothers in a football team playing for each other as much without possession as with it, spurring each other onto victory. Brothers on a community project together impacting the lives of children, older people, the disengaged, the neglected, the powerless with practical help and support. 

Brothers on a mission together to do life together and be there for each other in every season of life. Not out for selfish ambition, but in it for mutual edification. Open to rebuke and compliment. Able to acknowledge their frailties and inconsistencies without condemnation or reprisal. 

That’s worthy of praising and advocating. It’s no wonder this kind of life in harmony is something God blesses. It’s Him all over. 

For His Name’s Sake 

Shalom

Brothers

I can’t empathise the plight of being a woman.

The journey of understanding the female gender I quickly understood has to be taken with one female at a time. Even that journey is … fascinating and subject to change.

It doesn’t make matters easy with men. After all, as we know, people are just weird.

But…

I thank God for brothers. My parents gave me one for the home. He is brilliant, it’s great being his brother. Much as I love all my close family, I relate to my brother the most. We have an understanding and a rapport that is surprising for those who think I am the paragon of antisocial etiquette.

Since then I am truly grateful once more for the brothers God has placed in my life, around the world, around the country and finally in the immediate local area. God knows I need them. God knows I am grateful for them.

For His Name’s Sake
Shalom
