Do you struggle with being humble, and yielding to God’s will? Most of us do. This extends to accepting an iron-sharpening-iron relationship He has set in our path.
Yet the benefits are so good for us.
Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”
Make no mistake, God sets people in our path for a reason. That Bible teacher in your church might have words of wisdom for you from her rich and varied life. Be open to that.
If you are in fellowship with a mature, older believer, let him or her walk with you on your journey. Learn from them. Ask questions. Learn to be vulnerable.
The benefits and outcomes will be richer than you can imagine. This is especially true when someone points out areas you can do better in. Not fun, but that is the essence of iron sharpening iron.
And it’s good for you.
Lord, help us be open to the leading of your Holy Spirit when encountering someone who could mentor us. Amen.
