A song I listened to over and over this morning is called “One Small Step” by downhere (www.downhere.com).
The main idea of the song is so comforting in that we do not have to walk through life alone but can have brothers and sisters in Christ to join us in that journey. A lyric says, “We’ll take one small step, two at a time.”
Well, as I reflected on this great display of love within the body of Christ, I was reminded of Truth in Love’s team counseling philosophy where we provide 2 biblical counselors not just one. So our song would sing, “We’ll take one small step, three at a time” meaning three of us will be walking together!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 reminds us: “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (ESV)
