What makes life meaningful is that we don’t have to go through it alone! We cannot control the twists and turns that life takes but we most certainly can determine not to be alone while we go through life. God has created us to have 2 key relationships: one with Him and one with other humans.
Life is better when we do it together. Solomon was wise enough to recognize that there are benefits for being together with others. If you are struggling with loneliness, please know that God desires for you to connect with people. He even has people that are called to be with you in life. Open your heart to receive those people. They may not look the way you think they should but they are the people you need in your life right now!
If you are relying on politics or other human systems, you will always be disappointed. But, if you trust God to bring you into the right relationships then you will have the right person with you when you go through life (even if that means you go through the valley of the shadow of death). Let God love you through other people and commit to be a person through whom God’s love can flow! Two are better than one.
