The Tradition of the Cord of Three Strands

In a covenant marriage, we wives are woven together with our husbands as one flesh. What is even more beautiful than that picture, however, is the fact that God is the central strand in our cord. He is the One who holds us together.

Whether Solomon was referring to marriage specifically or not, he brilliantly captured a picture of covenant marriage by this quick reference to a cord of three strands.

In a wedding ceremony, this symbol of covenant marriage can be demonstrated by braiding three cords together, using Ecclesiastes 4:12 as explanation for your guests.
