Two Are Better Than One!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJB)   Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?  12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Solomon is speaking from a vantage point of living with a wayward heart condition.  He did not personally have a relationship with God or could apply His knowledge and wisdom until his later years of life.

Solomon learned many lessons the hard way by choosing to live without a personal relationship with God.

His idea is that two people are always better than one.  This thought can be carried through in a business partnership, a marriage, or friends.  Virtually in any situation, the call for two, rather than one person, rings forth with some verifiable truth.

In fact, in the book of Proverbs the Bible tells us that a three-strong cord cannot be easily broken.  This certainly applies to a marriage triangle, or connection, including God and both spouses.  Or a family relationship with parents, God, and a child.

However, when pursuing a relationship with God each individual must enter into it on his own accord being in spiritual agreement with God before he can agree and relate well with others.
