Connect in a Group, Jan. 20-26

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Message Outline

Work with each other

Blessing in your labor when you sweat

9 Two are better than one,

because they have a good return for their work:


Pick each other up

Support in tough times when you fall

10 If one falls down,

his friend can help him up.

But pity the man who falls

and has no one to help him up!


Fire each other up

Warmth in cold times when you drift

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.

But how can one keep warm alone?


Fight for each other

Strength in dangerous times when you are attacked

12 Though one may be overpowered,

two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
