1 Corinthians 3:16-17
“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. 
Heavy words! God not only dwells in each of us, He dwells “in our midst”. Our unity as the Body of Christ invites the presence of God and creates a temple for Him to inhabit. Through disunity and petty squabbling, we destroy that temple and drive away God’s presence. Unity in the family of God is not just a good idea, it is sacred
God cares about unity. The church is His body- and when we become agents of discord in that body, we are in truth rejecting God himself. If I want to experience the presence of God, then I need to become a facilitator of unity, not an agent of discord. This week, I need to look for opportunities to protect the unity of the body. 
God, thank you for your presence! Thank you for the privilege of being part of your body. Help me this week to promote and protect the unity of your body, so that your holy presence will always feel at home in our midst.
