Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

If it is possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

MFM Daily Devotional 7 June 2024 MESSAGE

God did not create us to live alone or remain in loneliness. Rather, He desires that we relate with one another with the warmth of His love and live in peaceful harmony as much as possible and as long as we live.

He started the plan of companionship right from the Garden of Eden when he saw the aloneness of man, Adam, in spite of the animals that were all around him. We need to be in the company of our kind, just like birds of the same feathers flock together. If animals, love to be with their own kind, why not man.

God decided to make a being like Adam; hence, the woman who was brought out of the rib of the man. One of her major assignments was to be a companion to the man. Since creation, marriage remains the very expression of God on earth for deep intimacy and undivided companionship. From here, we began to see all other human relationships coming forth: parent-child, sibling-sibling, friend-friend, and so on.

In each instance of companionship, we are to be our brother’s keeper, a help and strength to the weaker party. This explains today’s Fire Scripture, that when one falls, the other helps him to rise again. But where there is no companion and a good one at that, he remains fallen and unable to rise again.

Where are you today brother and sister? Are you alone? Decide to have a good interpersonal relationship with your others: neighbors, friends, colleagues at work, classmates, and church members. Don’t stay aloof and exist like an island! Be good to those around you in word and in deed. It is true that the world is full of wickedness and cruelty. Remember, you are not living in the desert. There will always be good and bad people in this world. You can’t avoid being offended. Find a place to forgive and move on.

No matter where we find ourselves, the Bible implores us to live peacefully, as much as possible with those around us. Be a godly example to help some other people become better. Do away with suspicion, hatred, and the likes. You may need that fellow’s assistance one day. Demonstrate the life and love of Christ through your relationships, and live a holy life so that you can see God (Heb.12:14).
