Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NLT
[9] Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.

[10] If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

[11] Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone?

[12] A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

Reflection . . .

We often hear this passage read or preached on at weddings. It’s a great passage that is very comforting for those who have someone to share moments with. It is also for all of us to remember in almost any situation in life!

The Lord put us on this earth with other people and our mission is to engage with other people, to help one another, and ultimately share the gospel with them and disciple them.

Two are better than one. It’s a true statement, but it can be very difficult. There will always be problems to face, forgiveness to be given/accepted, and with the Lord’s help two people are always better than one.

Let’s find someone, a team member, a friend or family member who can stand with us in difficult times. You may be facing a battle or loneliness. God is with us, but He does want us to reach out to others for help. With Jesus, nothing is impossible. The battle is his!
