2011 Lent Devotional Guide
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 (New Living Translation)
9 “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 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.”
My friend Cathy and her husband Rick are repainting their home interior. Cathy told me that she’s good at trimming and Rick is a pro at rolling the paint. I thought her story perfectly exemplified this week’s Lent message.
We were created to be the Body of Christ. All of us having an important role to play and loved equally by the one living God, our God. As you prepare today, ask yourself this question?
Who have partnered with lately? And has that partnership proven fruitful? If not, why do you stay?
A great novel that speaks on partnership, Claudia Mair Burney’s Murder, Mayhem & a Fine Man.
