Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10
If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and
has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep
warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two
can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

The wisdom of Solomon as he reflects on the unity of those under God's love and
grace. These have formed an alliance, a bond, a friendship that is bound by
God's love. They help and rescue one another, they comfort and sooth one
another, and they protect one another.

I am sure you have seen geese in the shape of a "V" flying in the sky. By
flying in formation they work together to reduce the wind drag. When one bird
tires, another rotates to the front where the wind drag is the greatest. The
birds in the rear honk to encourage the others in the front to keep flying. If
one bird falls out of the group, several others will fall out with him to
ensure his protection. Working together they reach where they are going. Are
you reaching where you are going in your marriage or your friendships? Perhaps
you are missing your mark because you have neglected to include God. God's love
is what binds the marriage or brings friends closer together. Pray for God's
endless love to fill your life. Pray that the loneliness, despair, turmoil,
hopelessness will empty as His love overflows in your life. God bless you and
may you find His blessing in your life.
