Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NKJV) 9 Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. 10 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. 11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

The value of a true friend is priceless. Having a friend to help you and to stand with you refreshes and strengthens you physically and emotionally. Working together with a friend can lighten your work and much can be accomplished. Enjoying the outdoors is safer with a friend. In case of an accident it is well to have someone there who can render help. On cold winter nights, a husband and a wife can keep each other warm. It is better to go to places with a friend, for if someone comes against you, a friend can help you. For this reason, it is even better to go with two friends or more. Solomon made the discovery that even a self-centered man cannot go it alone. He will not find satisfaction in this life. It is better to go through life with a friend. Therefore, husbands, count your blessings for you have a wife who is your true friend. And Christ who is the center of your marriage.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
