Yesterday we had a potluck-lunch to celebrate a fiftieth anniversary of marriage. It was a great occasion to see how the Lord has protected their marriage over 50 years. I used Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 to explain how important it is to have the Lord as the third cord involved in marriage and life.
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he does not have another to help him.
Again, if two lie together, then they have warmth; but how can one be warm alone?
And if one overthrows him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
