Ecclesiastes 4:12 and Three Watchful Deer, Lake Manawa State Park, Iowa.Three watchful brown deer blend in with the dead vegetation, Lake Manawa State Park, Iowa. Ecclesiastes 4:12 bible verse. A cord of three strands

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV)

A Cord of Three Strands Stands Strong

While I photographed these three deer a a forth deer stood about 20 feet behind me. She nervously looked for an opportunity to join the other deer and eventually did. Deer are herd animals and find greater safety and security in numbers. The Bible encourages Christian believers to stick together. When we stand by one another we can provide help to each other in countless ways. Together we can find community, friendship, emotional, physical and spiritual support, accountability and so much more. 

Ecclesiastes 4:8-12. It talks about the importance of standing together.

Matthew 10:29-31 and Two Tree Sparrows Feeding, Bellevue, Nebraska.A Pair of Tree Sparrows Feeding, Bellevue, Nebraska and Bible verse Matthew 10:29-31 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31

God Cares for us Far More than Sparrows

The Bible tell us God’s eye is on the sparrow and all of His creation. If He watches over the birds and even feeds them in winter, He certainly watches over us and those we love. Jesus went on to say in the following verse,  Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.” Our Father in heaven knows the physical and spiritual needs of those who follow Christ. He will not forget us.

Psalm 25:10 and Two Squirrels Scamper Across a Snow Covered Road, Douglas County Nebraska.A pair of squirrels run across a road under snow tress at Seymour Smith Park, Omaha Nebraska and bible verse Psalm 25:10, God's humble paths

“He leads the humble in justice, and He teaches the humble His way.  All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.” Psalm 25:9-10

In His Humble Paths

The Word of God talks highly of humility. Only a few times does the Bible mention pride in a positive manner. When we follow God in a humble way the more teachable we stay. Verse nine promises God teaches and guides the humble and will lead them in the justice of His ways. Then verse ten declares all God’s way contain lovingkindness and truth. When we follow God’s humble paths for life He leads us in lovingkindness and truth. Amen.

Read all of Psalm 25, a humble prayer of David asking for guidance and protection.
