9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
That ring covers a multitude of sin through the simple reality that it points to. There is one that binds us who is more consistent than my headstrong and willful ways. Thanks be to God that I have the privilege of being bound to Treva through God's love for me. That love is most perfectly expressed in Jesus, and I hope to love her as I have been loved by God. Of course that means that I should be taking out the trash right now.
