One of my favorite passages about love and relationships from the Bible is Ecclesiastes 4: 7-12. It speaks to the reality that most often and for many reasons two are better than one. Read and enjoy and think about the ones you love.

7 Again I saw something meaningless under the sun:

8 There was a man all alone;
he had neither son nor brother.
There was no end to his toil,
yet his eyes were not content with his wealth.
“For whom am I toiling,” he asked,
“and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?”
This too is meaningless—
a miserable business!

9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:

10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.

But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Though life can sometimes be hard, you are never alone. God is present always–the third strand of the cord and the One that holds it all together. Reflect upon the words in these verses and give thanks for the special people in your life. We can’t do this alone. Keep your hands open. Two are better than one!

Two are better than one!
