Have you ever wondered what makes the difference between a spotlight and a laser beam? How can a medium power laser burn through steel in a matter of seconds, while the most powerful spotlight can only make it warm? Both may have the same electrical power requirements, but their difference is unity. A laser beam can simply be described as a medium of excited molecules with mirrors at each end. Some of the excited molecules naturally decay into a less excited state. In the decay process they release a photon, a particle of light.
It is here that the unique process of the laser begins. The photon moves along and “tickles” another molecule, inviting another photon to join him on his journey. Then these two photons “tickle” two more molecules and invite two more photons to join the parade. Soon there is a huge army of photons marching in step with each other. It is this unity that gives the laser its power.
A spotlight may have just as many photons, but each is going its own way occasionally interfering with other photons. As a result, much of its power is wasted and cannot be focused to do dynamic work. However, the laser, because of its unity, is like an army marching in tight formation and is able to focus all its power on its objective. The conclusion: there is power in unity.
In our flesh, bones, and organs there are a variety of cells. There are nerve cells, blood cells, and many more each having a distinct function. Our body operates smoothly not because the cells get together and vote on what to do, but because each one does what it was designed to do.
The function of our head is to bring all these different cells together so our body operates efficiently according to each member’s design. Our bodies would not operate properly if each cell chose to go its own way. Know what we call rebellion of the cells in our stomach? Indigestion. A revolt of our brain cells is called insanity. Anytime the cells in our body do not operate properly we feel it and become sick and know there is something wrong.
Now let’s bring it on down home. Many of the problems in our family, on the job, in the church, and in our nation are the direct result of disunity. Each one of us has a distinct purpose to bring unity and stability to our particular placement. And when we step out of our design or even refuse to do our job there are serious consequences. There is a breakdown in the system resulting in major maladies sometimes even death.
We must operate in the capacity we have been placed in so there will be unity, health, strength, and progress. Every employer, manager, supervisor, or proprietor desires and hungers for such an experience. If every person will operate according to their job description with focus there will be more efficiency and much less waste. The purpose of our ear is to help our eye, and the hand to help our foot, and our nose our mouth. This is focus at its best. For more info you can visit us at www.JoyChristianMinistries.com.
