Two are better then one because they have a good return for their labor: if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
Sometimes I can be very reclusive. I enjoy time alone to hear myself think away from the distractions of the world. I’m confident in my independence.
While it is perfectly fine to enjoy quiet times of refreshing, too much time alone is not good for a person. Since the beginning of creation, God saw that it was not good for man to be alone and He created a helper, a companion, and friend.
As I look at my own life I can truly say, I wouldn’t be half the person I am today if it were not for some of my closest friends. Those who spoke life and truth over me, and opened my eyes to help me see my true potential and believe it.
The scripture goes on to say, “…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 easily broken.”
Have you ever looked at someone in emotional distress and thought they were overreacting? Why are they upset over something so small? God is never bothered by sensitivity. Psalm 56:8 says, “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”
God is keeping track of every tear, He has a journal of every bad day! God cares about all the little details of our day. The times when we feel nervous, shy, scared, sad, or overwhelmed.
I believe as Christians we have a responsibility to look at others with the love of Christ. We should ask God to help us see the potential in others and call it out. We have the power through Christ to completely change someone’s destiny in ways we cannot even imagine. Only God sees.
Let’s start building people up, instead of looking at what is wrong. When someone is sad, be the shoulder to cry on. Two are better then one. When someone is shy or scared take thier hand and lead them through the unseen fears. Don’t let your friends fall into fear, anxiety, or loneliness. Build eachother up.
Let’s look on others with eyes of faith and tell them what they can become. When we do this for others, God will not leave us alone. He will make sure to send someone alongside us to speak words of encouragement and call out our potential.
