Understanding ‘strength in unity’ internally

October 6th 2023

It is said that there is strength in unity, but more often than not, this unity is understood externally, in the social, political and military domains: people unite to build or unite to destroy, but it is always an external unity. From now on, we must understand unity internally; we must be united by our ideal, we must be united by a divine idea, united by our brotherly love, united in the work we do to bring about the kingdom of God. Then, yes, unity becomes an extraordinary power. There is nothing wrong with external unity, but it is incomplete: people associate for a while and then their association comes to an end and everyone goes back to their own affairs. Whereas the unity of which we speak, the unity that is true strength, lasts forever.*
