Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
Psalm 133 describes brothers dwelling in unity in terms of anointing oil and dew. The precious anointing oil used on Aaron was God's way of setting him aside as a priest, one who would make atonement before God for the sins of the people. It signals that God is ready, willing and able to forgive sin and restore people to fellowship with God.
The dew on the mountain is a sign of life and refreshment. In a hot, dry place the dew means it is cool enough for rest and ease. The moisture creates beauty and is incredibly helpful to bring out the lush, green plants.
Unity in the faith gathers God's people together in peace with God and one another. It brings rest and joy. It builds prosperity and hope. It's evidence of God's blessing, now and forever.
