You were not created to fight the battles of this world alone.
There are few problems we have that others haven’t dealt with. God calls us to connect with others who will encourage our desires to be better.
We like to talk about how iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17). It’s great imagery! But have you ever SEEN it? Large sparks, rough edges broken, dangerous metal splinters, harsh noises. It takes strength, patience, and accuracy to sharpen a tool made out of iron. It’s difficult and dangerous.
We want to be better but we don’t want sparks to fly.
