Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 - Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. NASU
There are a lot of reasons why two are not better than one, and I believe the number one reason is your "Faith".
If you enter into a relationship, friendship, or marry someone who doesn't have the same beliefs as you all I can say is get ready for a wild ride.
A preacher friend of mine said a long time ago you can tie two cats together by their tales. You will have a union but you will not have unity.
You join yourself to the wrong person whether it is in marriage, friendship or a business partnership be ready to pay a very high price for this union.
I was listening to a documentary the other day and this young man said on numerous occasions he made friends with the wrong people and that was on him and it cost him from attaining a lot of his goals.
I have done my fair share of marriage counseling and I can tell you right now I was never able to help two people reconcile when only one was interested in reconciliation. Never!
In fact, the greatest Marriage Counselor in the world can't reconcile two people when only one wants to be reconciled.
So it is of the utmost importance when you want to accomplish a goal and it will involve other people that you like and respect each other, have the same faith principles, and you both believe in what you want to accomplish.
There are advantages of two people joining forces to accomplish something great. When one gets tired the other is there to help them keep on going.
If you are young and just getting started in life be very sure you make the correct choice when it comes to whom you consider your friends. You must be very careful with whom you associate or call your friends.
As the old saying goes, "Show me your friends and I will show you your future."
As you become older you likewise need to be just as cautious. I don't believe a day goes by that I don't read about or hear on the news about older people being scammed.
Two are better than one if you are both traveling in the same direction and both want to accomplish the same goal.
Think About These:
Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.
A man with a burning ambition is seldom fired.
