Day 122 – Two are Better than One


‘Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour.’ Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NKJV)

Many things in life require the concerted effort of a team in order to achieve good success. In life we are not meant to be alone, no one was intended to be an island unto himself or herself. Indeed in the beginning God declared that it was not good for man to walk alone, and therefore gave onto him woman (Genesis 2:18).

The marriage institution is mean to exemplify perfect teamwork. In marriage, it take both the man and the woman to bring children into this world. The man has his role and the woman her own. When in harmony both roles are performed well, there comes forth a beautiful result. Single parents find it difficult to raise a child alone, this is understandable because that was not the intended plan of God. The bible says ‘two are better than one’ and they shall have a greater reward for their labour. This is the way marriage was intended to work.

I admonish you to think this way – it is better that I am properly married than otherwise. As a single person, believe the best for your marriage. For the married, even if your marriage has some challenges, this truth cannot be negated. Prayerfully do the best in your power to enjoy the benefit of ‘the two’ and patiently and lovingly wait to see God do a new thing in your marriage relationship. God will help you. Have a great day.
