Psalm 133:1 How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony! (NLT)

Harmony is harder than it has to be. Too many people today prefer to sing solos.

A social media post making the rounds shows U2 adapting their song Pride (In the Name of Love) to honor the Israelis killed by Hamas terrorists as well as the Palestinians killed by Israel’s forceful response. (See it here: [https://bit.ly/46IrmQV])

We have attempted to live in harmony with our Black Dog for the last twelve hours or so. She awakened me around midnight with a politely urgent request to go outside. Then she did it again a couple of hours later. And again a couple of hours later. And again when my bride arose for the day and again just now.

She is appropriately apologetic. She does love us so. I will stop for yogurt on the way home from my early appointment with the shoulder surgeon. Millie the Black Dog and I understand one another and work together to keep from having to clean up a rather unwelcome mess inside our home.

You and I will have innumerable opportunities to sing solos today. We will make more beautiful music and cause fewer messes if we learn to sing in harmony.

Let’s sing together, and let’s make fewer messes.

I will learn to harmonize.

Our Father, we need more harmony and fewer solos. Remind us how working together works. Empower us to join hands, hearts, and high parts to make beautiful music that honors you and blesses others. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
