Friendship

Posted: July 8, 2011 in Friendship, Quotations

“We all know the proverb: ‘Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another’ (Prov. 27:17). It’s a great word picture. Ask yourself: am I sponge that never hurts anyone, but never helps much either? Am I a sword that cuts to the quick but also destroys? Or am I a stone, the kind of friend upon which others can be sharpened, made better and more mature? Faithful friends make better stones than sponges or swords.” –Kevin DeYoung
