Devotional Guide, Today’s Reading – Sunday, June 19, 2022



Text: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed? – Amos 3:3.

Comment: In life generally, people cannot have common ground if they have no agreement.  They must be friendly disposed to one another before it will be possible to plan and execute things together. In essence, Prophet Amos pointed out that there will be no fellowship without friendship.  When we walk contrary to the will of God, we fall out of His favour and friendship. 1 John 1:3-9.


Today’s text is to the intent that we should be mindful of what we agree with people or what we engage ourselves in doing.  In the Bible, the builders of towers of Babel were in one accord, but it did not make that project acceptable to God hence He scattered them with different languages that brought to an end their project. – Genesis 11:8, 9; Exodus 23:2.


We should unite to do what is right and not to do evil. The law of God says: “Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment.” (Exodus 23:1-2) “Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: {love as: or, loving to the} Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. (1 Peter 3:8, 9.
