9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Two hands are better than one, two feet are better than one, two heads are better than one (though perhaps not on the same body). Working together we can accomplish more. As the old adage says "many hands make light work. What a blessing to have a friend to help.

Friends are an incalulable value and Jesus Christ is a faithful friend that I recommend!
