My experiences this year have reminded me of the importance of relationships and the ability to defend ourselves. While we may want to think that we can handle things on our own, some situations are more complex. If we want to stand up and defend ourselves or others, it is better if we have a stronger cord with more strands!
On our own we are weaker than when we join together. We are reminded that a "cord of three strands" is stronger and will not be easily broken. We can apply this lesson to our lives in many ways. We can consider the three strands of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that strengthen us and help us understand. We can also relate to bonding with other believers in order to work together for God's Kingdom. As we embark on our spiritual journeys, we need to have both the Trinity of God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit and a fellowship of believers that keep us strong and sustain our work!
Do not go it alone, form a cord that cannot be easily broken!
Thank You for the people in my life that can help to strengthen me. Please be part of each of these relationships and strengthen us to do Your work. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
