A Better You

Today's reading: Proverbs 27:17

God created us as relational beings. That means we are designed and wired to be in relationship with others. One of the beautiful things about this is described in Proverbs 27:17.

"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another."

As I look back over my life, I can identify a number of "sharpening" relationships. In other words, relationships where someone pushed me take that extra step in order to do my best, stimulated and challenged me to think outside the box, encouraged me to be diligent and to stay the course, taught me what was right or how to respond properly through their example. To some degree all of our relationships are sharpening. But there will be a few relationships that are extra special in that they that go above and beyond, and in so doing, move us closer to reaching our God-given and fullest potential.

How have you experienced or observed "sharpening" by another person? Who has been a significant "sharpening agent" in your life, and how have you grown as a result? What does this proverb reveal about relationships, and our need for friendships with good and godly-minded people? Tami
