Two Is Better Than One [Ecclesiastes 4:9 Daily Devotional]
Ecclesiastes is considered wisdom literature from the Jewish Scriptures and is mostly attributed to an ancient Israelite king named Solomon. What Solomon is saying here is that it’s important to be in a community. God did not intend for us to be alone, so we must find people to surround ourselves with. We’ve found this verse to be so true even to this day that it’s become its own idiom even in secular culture.
Two Is Better Than One
Don’t do life alone. No matter how socially anxious or introverted you are, people are important to your life. It’s important to find people who align with your beliefs. Not that everyone will (or should) agree with everything you believe in about a variety of things, at the very least you should share a common goal, which is to love people and serve your community. The best place to find people like that would be your local church. This is why you need to find a church you can call home. I encourage you to find a church you like; that’s the community you want to plug into, I know you won’t regret it.
Father, thank you for putting people into my life. Even though I won’t always get along with those people, I know that they’re beneficial to my life because they help me to grow and get closer to you. Help me to love and serve others well. It’s in Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
