Strength in Togetherness

Strength in Togetherness


Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV)

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Change can be a daunting challenge. It’s a part of life most of us try to avoid, often causing us to miss opportunities, strain relationships, and leave potential unfulfilled. When we isolate ourselves during times of change, these issues can become even more overwhelming. However, within the safety of a community, we find encouragement and reminders that challenges in life can work for our good. This truth is much easier to embrace when we are surrounded by trusted friends, echoing the wisdom that we are indeed stronger together.

Life will always throw curveballs our way. Hard times will come, and the unknown can be frightening. But take heart and remember the strength found in togetherness. Much like the “Supper Club” that gathers around the table, sharing meals, stories, and wisdom, the collective strength is palpable. When each member brings their unique perspectives and contributions to the table, the result is a powerful blend of support, insight, and resilience.

A supper club isn’t just about the food; it’s a metaphor for a powerful, supportive community. It’s the gathering of individuals who each have something valuable to offer and stand to gain something equally precious. A community like this can be transformative in navigating the trials of life, because “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Perhaps it’s time for you to start your own “Supper Club,” to gather your friends, family, or like-minded individuals around a table. A table where everyone is valued, where each one’s unique gifts and perspectives are acknowledged and celebrated, and where strength is found in togetherness. Remember, we are indeed stronger together, especially when faced with the inevitable changes and challenges life presents.


In what ways can you foster a sense of togetherness within your own community, family, or group of friends, valuing the unique contributions each person brings?

Reflect on the truth that “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” How does this concept resonate with your own experiences, and how can you apply it to face life’s changes and challenges with strength and resilience?
