Psalm 133 Good News Translation (GNT)

This morning’s passage teaches about harmony; the place where the Lord has promised his blessing—life that never ends.  Harmony is not about conformity; quite the opposite.  Harmony requires a blend of diversity.  In music, harmony is a blend of different notes played at the same time coming together for a beautiful song.

When it comes to our spiritual lives in relationship with the Lord, our lives all sing differently but every life should sing to glorify the Lord.  Therefore, the greatest harmony is experienced when God’s family comes together, bows before his authority, and seeks to glorify His name.  We do not have to sing the same note, because God has provided plenty of diverse lives to blend for the song.  Be happy with who you are and what you bring to life, because you are a necessary part of the harmony.  Blessing comes when you use your life to sing praise to God.

Psalm 133 Good News Translation (GNT)

In Praise of Living in Peace


How wonderful it is, how pleasant,

    for God’s people to live together in harmony!

It is like the precious anointing oil

    running down from Aaron’s head and beard,

    down to the collar of his robes.

It is like the dew on Mount Hermon,

    falling on the hills of Zion.

That is where the Lord has promised his blessing—

    life that never ends.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for making a harmonious place for my life to praise you.  There is no competition; my song is unique to me.  Be glorified in my life song.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
