Unity isn't as easy as you think

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity. [Psalms 133:1]

If anything, we all have learned  working together during this recording that living a life of unity takes work, determination, sacrifice, intention, and consistency. It truly is good for people live together with a similar mindset and set of goals, but somebody set up the chairs, somebody cooked the food, made the arrangements, cleaned up, followed up, and did the work. I'm not trying to discourage anyone from unity I just want to make you aware that it is not free. In the movies, we always see the 15 sec clips of bonding, work, and effort. Then we see the glorious plot unfold as everyone comes together and saves the day. I'm just saying realistically there is someone or someones in the group that are tired, worn out, and many times beat by the time you get to a unified place. I want to encourage you to have eyes to see the people in life that help build unity. To get behind them and support them. The be medicine to their wounds and a fresh breath of life in a moment of going unseen.
    During this project there have been so many people in the background that their job was to create environment, develop systems, sit in front of computers for hours, and practically go un noticed. I have also stood back and watched those on the forefront of recieving the benefits of unity go in to encourage and affirm the worker, the foundation builder, and the un noticed. Do you know what it made me say in my heart.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity. [Psalms 133:1
