Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 122

Oil on the Beard

Psalm 133:1-2

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

When I think of oil running down my beard, I think about washing my face, because obviously I’ve been a little sloppy at the dinner table. Olive oil is pretty slick stuff that doesn’t always behave. Did you know there are verses in the old testament that speak of oil running down the beard? And it’s a picture of God’s blessing, the unity of his people. Listen to Psalm 133, verses 1 and 2: “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down the beard, even Aaron’s beard.” May God anoint you with the oil of joy today.
