Iron sharpens iron

Proverbs 27:17
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

I love to be sharpened. Tonight, I spent a couple of hours with some of the men of our church. We talked doctrine, we talked leadership, we spent some time in prayer. I am thankful to have men around me who can sharpen me and help me to grow.

We need to be willing to let people get close enough that we can be sharpened. Sharpening takes close proximity. Sharpening lets your guard down. Sharpening can be painful. Sharpening admits that you don't know it all.

I thank God for Chris, Cortez, Dave, Deshaun, and Marlone.

What sharpens you? Do you take advantage of opportunities to be sharpened? Where does this take place for you?
