Spending quality time with friends and family is always a good thing. The psalmist says here that unity is good and pleasant. Unity between our fellow man does not always come easy, however. Sometimes we have to look past certain things and make real sacrifices in order to achieve that togetherness with our friends and family.
The following is what I like to call the three C’s unity; Commitment, Communication, and Confession. We must be dedicated to reaching out and doing our part to keep right relationships with other people. We must open our mouths and say what is on our minds. Think about how many relationships have been broken simply because someone didn’t express their feelings and a misunderstanding arose. We also need to confess and admit when we have done someone wrong. An apology goes a LONG way and so does forgiveness.
