No more independence – your Lion Bites word for today
God is reminding His people today that He does not desire us to be independent. God has not called anyone to live an isolated or disconnected life instead, He has called us to be dependent first on Him and then on one another. God is saying ‘I made you to be interdependent; to support and to be supported. If one falls down, I have ensured that another will be there to pick them back up. Don’t fear asking for help. Learn to love interdependence.’
Ecclesiastes 4 v 9-12
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
