In harmony of mind and purpose, our differences fall away.
Though one ant alone may be unable to rebuild a damaged anthill, the whole colony working together can move a mountain of dirt. Likewise, many people collaborating toward a common goal can accomplish seeming miracles. In the wake of a storm, we pick up the pieces together. When floodwaters submerge a community, we work as neighbors to clean up and rebuild. Nations help nations when human needs are greater than divisions or boundaries. As we work in harmony, differences fall away and strangers become friends. My earnest prayer is for harmony of mind and purpose in times of greatest need as well as times of joy.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, … that you be united in the same mind and the same purpose.—1 Corinthians 1:10
