Unity Central

The quote below is from: "We Must Have Unity" By Wesley L. Duewel

"The home is central to spiritual unity.
- He who speaks critically in public usually speaks even more critically at home. - He who seeks to domineer in public has the habit of wanting his or her own way at home. - The person who causes friction in public usually sulks at home, pouts at home, or makes wounds at home by sarcastic and cutting remarks. - The person who fills the ears of the public with gossip and criticism usually says even more to the people within the home. - She who poisons the thoughts of the neighbors or the church usually fills her own home with poisoned air from her unsanctified mouth."

I have to say I agree with the statement "The home is central to spiritual unity." It all starts from home and moves out to the world from there!

Can you see that "love" is the first key to "unity" that then brings the "power".

1Co 13:13 And so faith, hope, love abide [faith--conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope--joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love--true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Wow love not faith is the greatest...then after the love comes:

Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

With the unity or one accord...then comes:

Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

Then the power. However it all starts with "The home is central to spiritual unity.

ooh well just some rambling by yours truly!
