Two are better than one...
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
It is very biblical to be in community. Man’s first dilemma was loneliness. In Genesis chapter two, The Lord says: “It is not good that man should be alone.”
So, the Lord created a mate for him. We are meant to be a TEAM (Together wE Accomplish More), especially as believers.
Look to the sky for further proof. When you see geese, they are always flying in a “V.” That “V” stands for victory, and they reach victory together. The reason they’re flying in a group, according to scientific studies, it conserves energy; it’s easier to keep track of each other; they can go further together; they cheer each other on; they share responsibilities.
Friends are so valuable. They bring joy, help us grow and keep us accountable so we will do and be better for each other and ourselves… they help us in our walk with the Lord too. Proverbs 27:17 says: “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”
God designed us to be a part of a body. 1 Corinthians 12:27: “Now you are the body of Christ…”
Fellowship with your friends as often as you can.
