Irish? Ties that Bind

Take thought of blessings. Many of the sayings we take for granted came right from scripture. 

Consider this one.  ‘May the strength of three be in your journey from this day.’ It ties back to Ecclesiastes 4:11-13.

If it is cold, two can sleep together and stay warm, but how can you keep warm by yourself?  Find the same idea in Ecclesiastes 4.  Two people can resist an attack that would defeat one person alone. A rope made of three cords is hard to break. 

A good friend is a great sidekick, but when we add in a third helper, The Holy Spirit, we have connections that are unbreakable. We have the strength of three on our journey.

Jesus said, “The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you. “Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid. (See John 14:25-27)
