Monday Night Devotion, Ecclesiastes 4:7-12
Last year, at this time, I was running away.
This year, at this time, I am running to.
Running to GOD.
Running to old friends.
Running into new friends.
Running to see what might be in store for me this year.
I’m planning to take direction from only one source.
Don’t expect me to argue with you about my purpose, or my role, or my future.
Don’t expect me to be the most devout or the most Christian.
Don’t expect me to lead you, at least not in any ways you would expect.
Expect that you will continue to influence me as you did yesterday on the drive down, as you did today beside me, and as you will tomorrow, no matter what comes.
Expect that I will love you, learn from you, and keep your strengths with me for longer than this journey will last.
In Ecclesiastes 4:7-12, we learn: “2 people can resist an attack that would defeat one person alone. A rope made of 3 cords is hard to break.”
I’m glad this is a 9 cord team. We can easily withstand a little fraying, a little twisting, and at some point a little slack.
