Supporting Others

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!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10


 Picture a man who is all alone. He has no children or family. His job consumes him. He is never content with his wealth. He has no friends because his work is his life. This is the picture Solomon portrays in Ecclesiastes 4:7-8 in his lessons on a meaningless life. This type of life is like chasing in the wind. 

From the beginning of time, God made it clear that it is not good for His people to be alone (Genesis 2:18). God designed us to cooperate. Throughout the Scriptures, He speaks of His people as a community that accomplishes more together than separately. 

During difficult times, it is critical that we walk in fellowship with other Christians. I have gone through experiences that brought me down emotionally and spiritually. Family and friends have lifted me up. 

My most difficult time in life was when we lost our 32-year old daughter a few years ago. My Christian friends were there for me. Last year when I suffered from serious back problems, my Christian friends were there. They supplied us with delicious meals for six weeks. 

It is important that we cultivate supportive friendships. We will find strength in the comfort and encouragement of those who care about us. Our Scripture reminds us that two people can accomplish far more working together than when they work individually. 

If you are not a part of a caring community of Christians, you are missing out on what God designed for you. 

Do you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If not, I hope you will call out to Him and then become involved in His family of believers. 

Link your life with others who are seeking God’s will. 

Thank you, Lord, for the Christian family and friends you have put in my life. Help me to be a source of support and encouragement to those around me.
