Good Life Journal - Philippians 4
Philippians 4:2-3 I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in the Lord. Yes, I ask you also, true companion, help these women, who have labored side by side with me in the gospel together with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
A disagreement between two women in the church has gotten the attention of Paul. He encourages them to find unity. He also encourages the other church leaders to help them to find unity.
Unity is always being challenged. It isn't natural for people to get along all the time. People get on each other's nerves and have differing viewpoints, that at times, create disagreements that lead to issues and problems. A few things...
-Expect disagreements . They happen. It doesn't mean that the sky is falling.
-Fight for unity not against each other. Value unity enough to have he hard conversations and do everything in my power and in prayer for unity to be modeled in my life.
-Remember that every believer has their name in the Book of Life. May our unity be driven by the fact we are in the same book in the end.
Unity is worth valuing and even fighting for. When disagreement arise, I will pray, plead and protect the church.
