Wondering when you are going to become the man that you always hoped you would be? Maybe we need to change our approach.
The book of Proverbs says that, “Just as iron sharpens iron, so does one man sharpen another.” When we fall into the cultural temptation of pride and isolation, it’s like a dull blade striking against a stone. We make ourselves and those around us weaker with each blow. Instead, we are to sharpen others and be sharpened by them.
So here’s two questions:
Am I surrounding myself with men who challenge me to become the man I’ve always hoped I’d become?
Am I that man for some other men in my life?
Men….this is the type of sharpening we need if we’re to become the man we’ve always hoped we be.
