The Power of Unity


Genesis 11:6, “And Jehovah said, Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do: and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do.”

It’s often said that discipline is the soul of an army. However, I believe unity is even more important because a united army will not find discipline challenging. It takes oneness to succeed as a group or body in any project. From our anchor scripture today culled from the wonderful story of men who had a vision to build a tower to heaven, there are lessons that can be learnt.

1. They are one people: They had the same vision and were committed to see the actualization. No project can succeed without unity of purpose. That’s why the bible says in Amos 3:3, “can two walk together unless they agree.”

2. The have all one language: They had the same perspective and orientation on how the project could be actualized. The Engineers, project managers, and the people subscribed to the same plan for the building of the tower.

3. This is what they begin to do: The bible says in James 1:22, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.” No plan will execute itself, the best business idea won’t manifest on its own without committed hands. It’s time to get to work for the day is far spent.

Good morning
