Here’s this week’s Proverb . . .
As iron sharpens iron,
so one man sharpens another.
God designed us for relationships. People need people.
But let’s be honest. Sometimes people can be a pain. They can rub us the wrong way. Sparks can fly.
Sometimes we just want to be alone. And on those all-too-rare occasions when we step away from the computer, turn off the TV and unplug the iPod, we often seek out people who will flatter us or agree 100% with everything we say.
Stay sharp. Surround yourself with people who will challenge you and tell you the truth. And then do the same for them. In a world full of deception, sometimes that’s exactly what we need.
