“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
We need each other. Dads, your kids need your attention and love. Mom, your kids have real questions about hard things in their lives. Time = Love. Let’s put our phones down, leave early from work, and stop feeling awkward about having real conversations with each other. You only have a short time with these kids – use it with wisdom. Kids have quirks and will make mistakes. So you must ask yourself, “Do I have their heart? When all else fails do they know that they can come to me no matter what?” Two people can do more than one. If one falls the other can help them up.
Maybe you know someone who is hurting, depressed, or broken. You may not be able to change their situation but you can walk with them through it. When was the last time you reached out to someone who is going through some hurt? We need to be available to be a shoulder to cry on and a willing ear. The people that made the biggest impact on your life were most likely the people that gave you the most time. Let’s give our time away freely in love instead of wasting it on ourselves. Time = Love.
