Sharpening Each Other

Feb 21, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Pastor's Corner  //  No Comments

Ever make a mistake? Ever say the wrong thing?

Of course you have, and so have I. We have all engaged our mouths before we engaged our minds and thought our words through. We have all had to say that we are sorry for our quick response that has hurt someone. Listen to the words of  Solomon, Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpoens iron, so one man sharpens another.” We need each other!

But I have also learned that we can hurt each other if we are not careful with our words. Rubbing two metals together usually makes a spark and grinds a little bit on each other; but if done correctly, it makes both pieces of metal better after the process. As Christians, we do not agree with alot of things that are going on in the world; but we must not forget that Jesus loves people and His compassion is what reached some for the kingdom of God. It is not our righteous anger that touches and changes; it will be showing the love of Christ. While sparks must fly between two metals being sharpened, let’s make sure it is compassion that makes the finished product.
