In part of my training as a Marine, they taught us to dig a foxhole big enough for two to oppose the enemy. When you fight alone, you could get scared and give up. But when you fight alongside another, you do so with great courage and renewed strength.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 puts it like this: “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”
Good words, aren’t they?
