Agreement – “Compromise means admitting your fault and advancing towards a common goal.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 5:12-13
(Please note: If you are viewing video on a Mobile Device you must scroll to bottom and enable “DESKTOP MODE”)
Once the grievance is on the table and out in the open, the problem seems to go away. The community in Nehemiah gets agreement about the problem. They admit their faults and make a covenant to discontinue the behaviors that are damaging community and unity. Agreement is core to unity. If we can’t agree on what the problem is, the conversation becomes pointless. Have you ever had a problem with the way a situation was handled? In your life, who do you need to achieve unity with? Pray and ask God who you need to forgive and walk forward in unity together.

The more you love others, the more you leave your pride. There is no place for pride when working on a high performance team. The people are pulling together to rebuild the wall amidst the opposition, and they are learning how to be absolutely unified. In order to strive for unity we must rely on the power of God, remain alert, and rally to the needs of others.
