My Daily Devotional


Getting Along With Others

“May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:23

I can still remember the time when we lived in Florida, and would drive back home to Kentucky to visit our families almost every month. Our children were very young at the time, and they would be in the back seat of our car for almost 12 hours. Although they normally did very well during the trip, they did have their moments from time to time when they were bickering and complaining. If you’ve had that kind of experience you too can remember, “Dad, she touched me”, or Mom, he won’t give me a turn.” I am sure that God sometimes feels this way when He looks down and sees His children quarreling and complaining. Getting along is important to God, as he states in the scripture above, “May they be brought to complete unity.” The disciples were prone to quarreling and complaining, but Jesus commanded that they love and serve one another. It should be noted that one of the seven things that God hates in the Book of Proverbs is, “a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.” God wants us to love our fellow man, and not do or say things to cause disharmony among His people. We are to practice humility, peace and a spirit of harmony in all that we do. We are to show love for our fellow man, being willing to freely forgive others who may have sinned against us. Just as God freely forgave us our sins, we are to freely forgive others. The Bible tells us that love and kindness should rule our lives, and through this we spread the love of Jesus to others.

After retiring from health care I have devoted the past ten years to a ministry, having founded and directed the Nehemiah Network, which provides assistance to the needy people in our area, by bringing together the numerous community organizations, churches and businesses to work collectively to meet the community needs. The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network. I am a published author of 17 Christian books, and have spent over thirty years tracing my ancestors and writing a book about my Kentucky Heritage.
