Loneliness has been called the most desolate word in the English language. But it’s more than a word. To many, it is a fact of life, especially for those who make it to the top (as we saw in the previous message) and begin to live distant and unaccountable lives. As Solomon finished describing that grim scene, he felt the need to offer a better plan, which led him into the thoughts we’re considering today. If we take his counsel to heart, we’ll discover one of the most important truths in all Scripture: two really are better than one. And upon discovering and applying Solomon’s words, we learn how to survive these lonely, desolate days between here and eternity.
