Third Strand

braided-hairSince I am bald, I am not exactly an expert on hair braiding. However, I saw an illustration that might be worth sharing:

A braid appears to contain only two strands of hair. But it is impossible to create a braid with only two strands. If the two could be put together at all, they would quickly unravel.

Herein lies the mystery: What looks like two strands requires a third. The third strand, though not immediately evident, keeps the strands tightly woven.

In a Christian marriage, God’s presence, like the third strand in a braid, holds husband and wife together.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain…”—Psalm 127:1.
