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. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Henry Cloud tells a story. A scientist did a study on fear. He had a monkey in a cage. He wired the monkey with sensors and then scared the monkey. He could then measure the response of the monkey to fear and the monkey’s reaction went off the charts. He then began to explore what would lower the monkey’s stress and fear. The only answer: putting another monkey in the cage. The fear reactions were lowered by half.
Life takes courage! Writing and publishing take courage and we are thankful for others who are with us on the journey.
God has given us people to help us navigate our time here on earth without fear: spouses, friends, family, co-workers, even sisters.
Who is in your cage with you? It could make all the difference.
