2 Are Better than 1

“From Strength to Strength”

Proverbs 18: 24, 27: 17 and Ecc. 4: 9-10

18: 24 – One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
    but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 27:17, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens the face his neigh- bor,” is almost universally seen as positive. Some view this maxim as an example of “tough love,” others as a rewording of a verse earlier in this passage, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 New International Version (NIV)

Two are better than one,     because they have a good return for their labor:
10 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.
