A friend of mine once said, “Always remember, you can’t make it on your own.”
Solomon reminds us that “two are better than one.” Why?
- Good return for their labor
- Help the other up when someone falls
- Keep each other warm
- When alone and overpowered, two can resist
He concludes with this thought, “A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart” (Eccl. 4:9-12). Alone, we are vulnerable, but there is strength in numbers.
Leaders must encourage one another, grow to maturity, and defeat the enemy together. The strength gained lays a foundation for a greater future.
