Ecclesiastes 4:12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
The scene: A rope made of three strands symbolic of Biblical marriage: one strand the bride, one strand the groom and one strand the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit).
The relationship between man and wife is unique, according to the book of Genesis when God created Adam and Eve. From the beginning of God’s creation, marriage is Christ centered, that is, from the beginning of the marital relationship, God’s perfect will is that the bond not be broken. The bonds are too strong, like a multi-braided rope. The single strand of cord becomes strengthened when braided with additional strands.
Matthew 19:4-6 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh?’ So they are no longer two but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’ “
Pray daily to keep the ties of marriage strong. Pray for your spouse daily.
