ALONE DOES NOT WORK WELL
9 Two are better than one, since they each have someone else to benefit from their work. 10 Because even if they both fall, one of them will help his partner recover. But the one who is alone suffers and does not have another to help him recover. 11 Likewise, if two are lying together, they keep each other warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12 Also, a single man might win in a fight with another alone, but two will defend themselves. A rope made of three parts is not easily broken.
In life, in business, and in ministry, partnership is just more efficient. A partner is someone you can depend on to make up for what lacks in yourself. A partner is someone to share successes and failures with. A Partner can help prevent failure, or help recover from it. A partner can help a successful person avoid pride in his accomplishment. A partner can share the joy earned from mutual accomplishment. Partnership increases the strength available for the work.
LORD, thank you for our partners. We value them as a gift from you. Show us how to display our appreciation for them so that they always know.
