“And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:” John 17:22Text — John 17:20-24
A bunch of broom is often tied together to make it effective in performing its main function – tidying up the environment. A single broom or even few pieces can never do what the bunch will do. The illustration shows that there is power in unity. There is an adage which says “united we stand, divided we fall”. Unity is a very important attribute in Christian fellowship.
Just as the body has many parts and one is dependent on the other, so God expects that we be united and care for one another. Each of us is uniquely gifted and endowed. There’s no need to be jealous or demonstrate anger, bitterness or keep malice with another person who is more gifted or better talented than we are. Do all you can to contribute to unity in your church, family and school fellowship. Be an example of a believer anywhere you go. Do not be an instrument of division but of unity.
1 Corinthians 12:12-14
