For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:10
The above Scripture is another one that the Pastor mentioned when he spoke on loneliness, he said he thought that the scripture was referring to more that a Physical Fall.” I can see this Scripture referring to something more also…..like an emotional fall. We would more readily speak of a physical wound than an emotional wound. This is where the enemy (Satan) is winning the battle. Many are suffering in silence while the enemy laughs.
So many teenagers and young adults and adult are suffering alone, we smile in front of each other, yet on the inside we are crying. Just think if we all opened up to each other and was a support for one another, what a beautiful world this would be. It would be a great wound to the enemy. We would be seen as caring and sharing with one another. Inmagine my surprise when I was told that when someone ask you how you’re doing, they don’t really care as to how you are really doing, it’s just a conversation maker. I can laugh about this now, but I remeber being asked once how I was doing. I started to vervablize the pain I was feeling, but by that time the person was rounding a corner, waving at me and saying : “Oh that’s wonderful.”
One thing I know for sure and that is, although God made us all unique in many ways, they’re a lot of things that are the same about us. No one person is immune. The doctor who treats us may have his or her own emotional issues, the lawyer, policeman, teacher, reporter etc….we all bleed the same. So let’s fight the battles together and not alone, let’s support each other and most of all, let’s pray to God for emotional healing.

I think that since this is from Ecclesiastes it could mean a physical fall but it has also the spiritual application of a greater than physical fall…
In total agreement. It could be physical, but we also know that many times the bible will have a literal and a symbolic meaning….I think Solomon in his wisdom saw how having a support system was very important. It’s also how we are to be for our church brothers and sisters. If they are down physically or emotionally we should be there for them, and they should also be there for us.
I agree, but unfortunately it isn’t always that way, sad to say.
No it isn’t….very, very sad. I’m looking forward to the day when our Eden home will be restored.
This reminds me to attend weekly fellowship…..been a bit lazy.
