As Iron Sharpens Iron

Recently, a friend of mine passed away.  I’ve missed her deeply and thought of all the things she has taught me such as how to laugh and grow old gracefully.

However, our relationship was not always perfectly. She became like an aunt to me, but we also had our disagreements at times.

Thinking about our relationship I was reminded of Solomon’s words, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”  {Proverbs 27:17}

Through all the ups and downs of our relationship, I was reminded how the Lord used them to strengthen me and expose both my weaknesses and my strong suits to me.  Throughout the course of our relationship, the Lord was definitely sharpening and shaping me.

How is the Lord shaping you?
