- What is the difference between “good” and “pleasant?” Good is what ought to be, pleasant is what we want to be.
- What is good is what God requires, what is pleasant is what we rejoice in. What is good is our duty, what is pleasant is our delight.
- Paying our taxes is good, but not necessarily pleasant! Unity is good, but it is also pleasant.
- Unity has different aspects. Theological, spiritual, financial, sexual, etc. When we break fidelity in one of these areas, disunity often results.
- Unity is rooted in the glorification of God. God is good and pleasant and following him is always good for us and often – but not always – pleasant.
- When we are unified in our churches, it is good and pleasant.
Psalm 133:1-3 How [good] and pleasant it is when brothers live together in [unity]! For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe. Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion. And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing, even life everlasting.
