I’ve been reading a lot of Proverbs lately. That’s the point I am at right now in my regular reading plan. Last night as I was finishing it up I came across Proverbs 27:17, which has long been one of my favorite passages.
Iron sharpens iron,
So one man sharpens another.
–Proverbs 27:17 NASB
I’m not going to even attempt to be long, academic, or eloquent here. I think the Scripture speaks plainly, and pointedly, in that verse.
Being with other believers makes us better. It makes us sharper and stronger. It helps refine us for the purpose of God’s good. How are you being sharpened? How are you helping to sharpen others?
