Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Let us then be careful with whom we converse with, questioning our influence by them. Do they sharpen us to do good works, share love, or exercise our grace and gifts? For if they are not challenging, pushing, or motivating us then they are not growing us and make our Christian character dull. No, not all of our bretherns truths will rub us the right way, but they will surely make us better.
