The Basis of Every Good Relationship

Ecc.3:9-12 speaks of how two are better than one and how a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.  The author is talking about relationships and ties in (pardon the pun) the idea of a braided three-strand cord.  Science proves that if two strands can each carry ten pounds before breaking, they will carry more than twenty pounds together.  In other words the math works in their favor.  Two oxen working together in unison will far outpull their combined individual capacity.  Relationships are crucial to the Kingdom and the only way to have great relationships with others is to have a very tightly fitted relationship with the Lord Jesus.  You may know doctrinally that God loves you but ask the question “How are things, really, between you and me Lord?” and let him love you more before you try it on anyone else.
