We all know the proverb: “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another” (Prov. 27:17). It’s a great word picture.
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. (p. 7)
