How Sweet It Is!

Behold, how good and pleasant it iswhen brothers dwell together…
It is like the dew of Hermon,
Coming down on the mountains of Zion!
For there the LORD has commanded the blessing... —Psalm 133 

How sweet it is when "brothers dwell together." How bitter when we don't.

"Why can't we all just get along?" Rodney King’s question still resonates. Roommates, spouses, close associates, long-time friends fuss and fight. Why must relationships unravel?

The solution is found on Mt. Zion, the place where God dwells, for it is “there” that God provides the blessing. Conflicts can be worked out as we humble ourselves in His presence. Put simply, people that pray together tend to stay together.

Occam's Razor is a principle in logic that states: "When you have several competing hypotheses, the simplest solution is the one you should select."

Having trouble working through a relationship? Try praying together. It can't get more simple than that.
