What Is a Cord of Three Strands?
This was a concept years ago I had learned as a new Christian and I still today get asked about it…thought it’s time to share!
It is simply a cord of three strands that become braided or intertwined together. This type of cord is very difficult to break. It doesn’t mean it can’t be broken; it just means it’s harder to do.
What Is the Full Meaning of Ecclesiastes 4:12?
“Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their efforts. For if either falls, his companion can lift him up; but pity the one who falls without another to lift him up. Also, if two lie down together, they can keep warm; but how can one person alone keep warm? And if someone overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (CSB)
