The wisest king of Israel once said that two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labour. That is if they are going the same way

If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up. Again, if two people lie down together, they can keep warm, but how can one person keep warm? Though one person may be overpowered by another, two people can resist one opponent. A triple-braided rope is not easily broken. A young man who is poor and wise is better than an old, foolish king who won’t take advice any longer. A young man came out of prison to rule as king, even though he had been born in poverty in that same kingdom. Ecc 4:10-14 GW

But the pertinent question is which two? Is it just any two? It is definitely not so.

God asked a question, and He is still asking in Amos 3:3. Can two walk together except they agree? When God asks a question, it is not because He does not know the answer, but because He wants you and me to think about the question.

Before you enter that relationship, you need to ask yourself four very important questions.

1. Can he/she go with me?

2. Will he/she go with me?

3. Can he/she grow with me?

4. Will he/she grow with me?

If the two of you are not going the same way, then you do not have a business with that person no matter how handsome or beautiful the person is.

Is your decision based on attraction or direction? Your marital journey is sweeter and smoother when the two of you are going to the same place. Your focus and vision are single. You have the advantage of cooperation and joint effort. You are not pulling at each other, distracting yourselves, and moving contrary to each other.

The pain in your relationship may be a signal that you are not going the same way. Please, do not ignore these signals.

If he/she is not born again and you are, it is a dangerous sign. Don’t say yes to an unbeliever or one with a different spiritual standing.

To be continued…

I receive grace to cut away from relationships that will distract and pull me back.

Lord, help me today to choose to walk with people who are in agreement with my destiny.

When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. Mat 18:19 MSG

Write the names of your 10 closest friends. Strike out the names of those who are not going the same direction as you are going.

Jer 26-29
