“Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:12 NKJV

We are living in a time where people are obsessed with individualism.

Everything is about self, if it is not self love its self care, if it is not self respect, it is self worth not withstanding that God’s perspective is the complete opposite.

Jesus sums up everything He told His disciples in this manner: love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these (Mark 12:30). 

I have often stressed how God’s boundaries are for us to experience liberty, and the command above shows us that once you are perfected in God’s love, it is not for you to go seek for worth, or care, or respect or love because in Him all this is complete. And because all these are added benefits of His love made strong in you, you become an extension of this same grace showed to you, unto others. Though they are important, they are not the goal.

In our theme scripture, the man of wisdom reiterates the same, the concept of individuality is not of God. Two are better than one, two can withstand the schemes of the enemy, and most importantly they cannot easily be destroyed in the presence of their Lord in whom they have placed their faith and agree upon just as it is not easy to break a cord of three strands.

Child of God, it is not for our kind to be lured into the systems and ways of the world. This is why we are members of one body, Christ’s body. Every limb and organ is part of an ecosystem that wouldn’t function well if anything is out of place. It is not God’s will for you to be the one that gets away. Stick closely to your family in Christ! Hallelujah.

Prayer: Father I thank you for this truth. I thank you for your love made perfect in my spirit and extended unto others. Let your grace be the driving force for your church, that we may all feel after you and be concerned with what moves your heart, in Jesus name. Amen!
