I read the prompt “Together” and because my first reaction was sadness, I was unsure if I would go any further or even post what I write but decided to at least write. Who knows? This could be a healing experience.
I thought of the verse in Amos “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?”* and wonder even now, what do the two have to agree on?
Respect for each other?
A readiness to forgive?
The purpose of lifting each other up?
Putting the other first?
Not intentionally wounding but being the first to reach out when a wound is brought to our attention?
Do the two agree on allowing the other to be his or herself? To allow the Holy Spirit to do the work necessary in the other person and not try to be His helper?
Do they agree to a whole hearted commitment that can take them through the harshest storms, leaning on the Father?
What do the two agree to, if they are to walk together?
The walk can be for a lifetime as with spouses, and children, and siblings, even friends.
Or it can be for a season.
But however long it is, the two or three or four or however many who are companions, must agree if they are to walk together.
*Amos 3:3 (New King James Version)
