Iron Sharpening Iron
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
- Proverbs 27:17
There are many things in this life that God uses to sharpen or refine us in our walk with Him. We go through trials that test our faith in order to develop steadfastness (James 1:2-4). God has given us His Word to teach and grow us as we learn to put our faith in HIs promises. And as Proverbs 27:17 describes, God uses the people around us to sharpen, encourage, and give us accountability as we walk with Him.
I want to encourage you today to take every opportunity to learn more about God and His character. Lean in to those around you and help them do the same. Whether you are playing basketball or chatting with friends over some coffee, take the opportunity to share truth and be the iron that sharpens another person for God's glory.
