As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
The question that today’s verse should bring to our minds is: In what ways do people sharpen each other?
We sharpen each other through exchanging information, discussing issues and critiquing each other’s ideas. Different people can bring different perspectives and strengths to a discussion. Like a knife blade rubbed on steel, this process in a friendship may sometimes cause the sparks to fly! Yet the result is good. A true friend sharpens and inspires the personality of his or her friend.
