It is only elements of unity that can weather the storm of life, and install long-lasting peace.
Unity is having one voice. It is majorly of the mind. It is having a unique and understandable way of communication. While everyone knows the power embedded in unity; some individuals, couples, and organizations use it on the contrary. They believe there is need for disunity to get some purposes realized.
How would a leader think that, if there is unity among his/her followers, it would jeopardize his/her own personal interest? How would some parents think if there is unity among the children, it may lead to “Coop D’état” in the home? How would some friends think that unity among more than two friends is undesirable?
Throughout history, nature and events have proved the efficacy and power of unity. Ants unite to build, bees unite to produce, and gnats don’t underestimate the power of unity. Men could only build a tower with unity in place. No wall, no matter how small its length and width, could be completed without unity. Each and everyone in the group may be undertaking different task, but it has to be towards a targeted and a united goal.
However, if you think disunity can do the magic, much more can unity offer. If you think disunity among your followers can give you rest of mind, much more can unity do. If you think disunity in a country will make you confidently and permanently be at peace and retain your power, much more can unity do. If you think disunity in families can promote and prosper your profession, sooner or later will you realize that unity in families can offer much more stability and prosperity to your success.
All these strategies men have been using to make countries divided, to make workers compete negatively, to turn siblings to rivals, to cause worship centres to shift their focus, to cause couples to seek for individual independence, is putting the power of unity to test. The end result is, surely nothing, but failure.
In this modern time, the power of unity has given birth to networking, multi-level marketing, etc. Unity can never work against you, if you don’t seek your own personal gain. The only thing it can do is to make you advance and succeed. It is wrong doings that would want you to employ disunity as an instrument for great achievement in business and life.
It is a good thing for businesses to operate in unity. It is a good thing for couples, siblings, families, and countries to dwell in unity. It is a good and pleasant thing to dwell in unity. There is nothing you can do to reap peace when you sow disunity. There is no amount of weapons you can employ so that disunity can give birth to a long-lasting peace. Only unity can give birth to such.
Both unity and disunity have a lot to offer. Unity in diversification has good things to offer; disunity in secession has evil things to offer. You’re free to make your choice.
BEHOLD, HOW GOOD AND HOW PLEASANT IT IS FOR BRETHREN TO DWELL IN UNITY! Psalms 133:1
ENDEAVOURING TO KEEP THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT IN THE BOND OF PEACE. Ephesians 4:3
