Strong Together

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
I LOVE people! And, that computes to craving face time with others—so much so that when I'm alone for even a part of day, my energy level drops and I can even start feeling a little depressed. That being the case, Solomon's words about "two being better than one" resonate big time with me. (Now before I go on, I do realize that we all need alone times so we can refuel and recharge spiritually, emotionally and physically. I also realize that I'm an over the top extrovert, so a lot of folks don't crave as much people interaction as I do.) But, no matter if you classify yourself as a people loving extrovert or a more reserved introvert, God designed you (and me) to be relational. He created us to be in relationship with Him, and He wants us to be in relationship with other Christ-followers. God's plan is for us to work and function at our best when we're interacting, supporting and serving God together.
How have you experienced "two being better than one" in your personal and spiritual life? Who "lifts you up" when you're struggling? Are you intentional about walking alongside other believers—-which allows you to both receive support and give it to others? Tami
