Wisdom That Binds The Three-Fold Cord

TEXT: “Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:12(NKJV)

There is strength in numbers, and where the world says three is a crowd, in marriage it is the saving grace. One twig is easily snapped, but add another to it, and it gets harder to snap the two, a third, and even more effort would be required.

A life partner adds strength to you on all fronts. But the icing on the cake, the addition that makes you two formidable is the presence of the Holy Spirit. In Ecc 4:8, the preacher asks “for whom do I toil?” Now, there is usually an end to our toiling and amassing of wealth, and that end is usually ‘to cater for family’. So there is wisdom in searching for a partner, but allow the Holy Spirit to be more than just a sleeping partner, allow the Holy Spirit to actively encompass and direct every move you both will undertake.

Pray: Father please safeguard our homes, and as the unbreakable threefold cord, make our unions strong. In Jesus name. Amen.
