A Devotion that is on my heart, inspired by a group of ladies at WIFETALK
What are the benefits of two people rather than one?
This can be applied to friendships, relationships, business, and marriage.
” Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, 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.”
I often quote the last part of this passage, as many of us probably have in the past, or even present. “A CORD of THREE STRANDS is not easily broken” A circle, group, partnership, business, or marriage, is not easily destroyed, taken apart, or broken.
BENEFIT 1 : The benefits of a tight circle, or group is that it is not easily moved, or damaged. No matter what comes up against it, or the type of storm, wind that blows its way, it will be almost impossible to take it down.
BENEFIT 2 : The benefits of a group, circle or partnership is that when one feels weak, or unable to perform a task, the other lifts him up, and even at times carries the wounded to the rescue.
BENEFIT 3 : When one feels cold, unloved, and abandoned, the rest of the crew surround the hurt with love, kindness, and care.
BENEFIT 4 : Two can collect in the harvest, for the hard labor they’ve put in. Be it parenting, marriage, relationship, or business. When one is weak, or is struggling, the other uplifts its partner, to keep going, and may even share the burden.
This is what I see in my vision for businesses, marriages, partnerships, groups, and friendships.
I see powerful group of warriors, standing tall for one another. We are ONE, united, with one purpose in mind, to uplift and encourage the wounded, and to comfort the broken.
I may be strong today, but tomorrow I may feel weak. This is why I don’t look down upon others, because I too can fall and break my neck, but rather lift up the weak, who can become my rescue tomorrow.
Two can war together, encourage one another, uplift and carry each others burdens, should the need arise. Pity to the one that stands alone. Woe to the one who has no one! He will have no one to pick him up, or no one to uplift him.
Choose to look out for your crew and create that bond that is not easily shattered, or broken, with God being that strand that keeps the circle together.
I HOPE you have been blessed! Until next time!
