Working on your own can be a lonely place. It may be helpful when we need to focus and avoid distractions, but to be working on our own all the time is hard work. We need others to inspire us, give us feedback and help us when we feel like giving up.
Having a friend or a colleague to work with helps us to solve difficult problems, tackle tricky issues and provides someone from whom we can learn and inspire us to greater things or maybe just help us get through the day.
With a cord of three, with God as part of the team, we read in the Bible:
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labour:
if either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
