so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. [Psalm 67:2-3]
It's so beautiful to know the God we serve is not meant for just one nation, one race, or one language. He is a God who saves everyone. Picture it: different skin-toned hands lifted in praise to God, words spoken in different languages, people from different countries all praising the same God. It's a glorious sight. To see God's message of forgiveness reaching far and wide around the world brings honor to those who work to see it spread. May the nations praise you, O God!

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
[1 Corinthians 1:10]
Often we can get wrapped up in criticism and differences fellow Christians may have. By criticizing, does it really help us to further the Kingdom of Heaven? Sometimes we get ourselves tripped up and stumbling over unimportant issues. Perhaps, it’s the work of the enemy to take our eyes off of what is important, living a life that is pleasing to Christ. If you have a problem with fellow Christians, take a moment and examine the importance of your issue. Would Christ delight in your sacrifice of self-righteousness for unity?
