Two Are Better Than One

Independence is our watchword and "Think for Yourself" is our motto. Declaring a need is a sign of weakness, an open admission of failure and lack of character.

Furthermore, we are on the move so much, who has time to share and to care? It has been my observation that we Christians are not immune from this hurry-up, hassle-hustle mentality.

Even though it is easy to buy into the selfish lifestyle and opt for isolationism instead of involvement, the consequences are bitter and inescapable. Swimming with the current of today's me-ism mindset has a way of eclipsing the contrasting light of Scripture.

Two are better than one because:

  • they have a good return for their labor—mutual effort
  • one will lift up his companion—mutual support
  • they keep (each other) warm—mutual encouragement
  • they can resist an attack—mutual strength
