Hearts Knit Together in Unity and in Love – Mosiah 18:21

21 And he commanded them that there should be no contention one with another, but that they should look forward with one eye, having one faith and one baptism, having their hearts knit together in unity and in love one towards another.

When we love one another, we become unified. I’ve had the opportunity the past few days to see many good friends whom I haven’t seen for a long time. “Knit together” is an apt description of how I feel.
What a great blessing it is to have good friends! You do feel connected with them, “knit together” in a very real sense. Your happiness is tied to their happiness. You feel a sense of community and therefore a sense of purpose. You feel that you are part of something bigger than yourself. Ultimately, we know that these friendships and the joy they bring will endure beyond the grave:

That same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there, only it will be coupled with eternal glory, which glory we do not now enjoy (D&C 130:2).

Today, I am grateful for my good friends and for the unity and the love I share with them.
