“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls
down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also,
if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one
may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
(Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)

“Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from

glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

(1 Peter 3:15b-16)
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and
there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful
scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the
mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
(Ephesians 4:14-15)
