Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Alas, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
We are not meant to be solitary creatures. Unfortunately, in our culture, we are led to think we can stand alone. So many people are alone in this world because it is so easy for us to look the other way…How many do I talk to every week who are lonely? This morning I feel moved to a new place and a new understanding.
God above, you have provided these words to me today along with a fire in my heart. I am so thankful! Amen
