Two or Three

My younger sister and I are less than two years apart in age, so we were like twins as we grew up. We didn’t look alike or act alike, but we were always together. 

In fact, we really were very different. I was the leader, she was the follower; I was aggressive and she was passive; I was talkative and she was quiet; I was bold and she was shy. (This isn’t completely true now.)

She and I had the same best friend–our next-door neighbor girl Velta who was between us in age. We were quite a three-some. We did everything together. We sang together as a trio in church. We became the triplets, always together. We added a lot of other friends to our original gang through high school, but we three girls were the core group.

We all loved each other, but we had our spats too. We frequently didn’t see eye-to-eye on things. Sometimes two of the three of us would agree and force the other one to either go along with us or leave us alone.

It is hard to get three kids to get along together. Two can do pretty well. But when you add the third person into the equation, things get mixed up. But we still love each other to this day. My sister and I live in the same town now, but Velta is in Florida. She comes home to visit occasionally, and we have found there is still a bond there and always will be.

If you can get three people in unity with each other, there is not much they cannot do. Jesus said, “If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matt 18:19 KJV.

In Ecclesiastes 4:12, the Bible says, “A three-fold cord cannot be easily broken.” O.T. Amplified.

Find yourself two friends you can agree with and pray together. God will move heaven and earth to answer those prayers.
