Buddy up - for small group Bible study success!

A short hint. As it says in Ecclesiastes ch.4 v.9-12 " Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him who is alone when he falls, and doesn't have another to lift him up.Again, if two lie together, then they have warmth; but how can one keep warm alone?If a man prevails against one who is alone, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."

Or as Proverbs ch.27 v.17 puts it, "Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens his friend's countenance."

By buddying up with a friend and making eachother equally accountable for the success of your study together, it gives you not only a safety net - someone to remind you that you need to do your homework, or to give you that much-needed word of encouragement. It also gives you an opportunity to minister in a safe, friendly environment. This is something that should not be overlooked or under-rated. It is an essential part of your growth as a Christian, before you take bigger steps of sharing with a cell group or the whole congregation.
