Edifier du jour-Ecclesiastes 4:7-12
Again I saw something meaningless under the sun: There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. "For whom am I toiling," he asked, "and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?" This too is meaningless- a miserable business! Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him 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.
Versus 9-12, especially 12, have been our favorite verses in our courtship. Having God as a deliberate third strand has seen us through some tough patches. In our case, two are truly better than one. I'm suprisingly calm this morning leading into our wedding, more worried about how tight the dress shoes will be on my ankles than the merits of marriage.
