Verse of the Day

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two Are Better Than One

When God created Adam in the beginning of time, He said that it is good for man to not be alone and then He created Eve. He gave them to each other so they could walk through this life together and not alone. This verse says that two are better than one because they can help each other succeed. Marriage is better when each person is looking out for the other and rooting for each other. If one person has trouble or falls, then the other one can reach out and help. They can rely on one another and lift each other up. They can be an encouragement for each other. This is what God meant for marriage. But someone alone will be in trouble when they fall.

Is your marriage a blessing? Do you help each other in troubled times? Do you pick each other up and encourage each other. Spend some time together in prayer for each other. Encourage and root for one another. This is why God gave you to each other, so you could serve Him by serving each other.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Help me be an encouragement to my spouse. Help me see his/her greatest strengths and qualities. May I lift him/her up when it seems like everyone else does not. Help me better serve my spouse. Amen
