The Bible says the word of God is a seed. It has life and can produce fruits when planted in our lives. Are you planting this seed and bearing fruits or living a superficial spiritual life without any fruits? In the last post – Living a fruitful life (Part 1), we saw how we need to prepare our hearts and receive God’s word. Let’s continue the remaining part in this post.
United we stand, divided we fall. Isn’t this very true? We understand the importance of living in unity to accomplish a common goal. But many times, achieving unity is tough when people start to think more about self. God wants us to live in unity. He united us together and made us part of his Church. Are we continuing to live in the unity which God gifted us? Apostle Paul wrote about four essential attitudes which can help us to maintain unity in the Church of God and these are foundations for the unity in our family as well.
Living a peaceful life is everyone’s goal. Are we successful in achieving it? Do we have peace? If you have been reading news lately, it is hard to miss the reality we are living every day.

Do we have peace within us and with others? In this post, let us read more on this quest for peace.

Everyone has their own agenda to follow and we get frustrated when we don’t get what we need resulting in fights and disputes. Let us see what James tells us the reason behind it and the way out of it.
