Though our whole family could NOT be together for Thanksgiving, I know that they would have LIKED to have been. And so one of the things I’m thankful for is that I have children who like being with one another. My wife and I have six children, three children-in-law, and three grandsons. And they all love to be together.
And that is one of the greatest happinesses in my life.
Yes, they irritate each other. They know and tolerate each other’s foibles. They sometimes have to put up with one another. But all in all they like each other and have a great time when they are together.
That is a good thing, and it brings happiness to my heart.
And that makes me wonder: when God’s people dwell in unity, whose heart is made happy?
Behold, how good and pleasant it is
when brothers dwell in unity! (Psalm 133:1)
