Iron Sharpens Iron & Mini Wonton Quiche Cups

Proverbs 27:17 (erv)

As one piece of iron sharpens another, so friends keep each other sharp.

Relationships can be challenging. They can also be life-giving and incredible. The best relationships are a good mix of both. Somewhere along the way, I think we started to believe that we should only spend time with the people who are like us, that agree with us, that think like us, act like us, and believe as we do. But when we make the choice to let differences be a barrier, we not only lose out on amazing interactions, but also the opportunity to grow.

We see it all the time in movies – the group of women who have all the same things in common, sitting around a table, agreeing with one another and avoiding challenges at all costs. They’re so alike that they even begin to look like one another! I get it; it’s much easier to connect and relate to those who are like us. But have you ever stopped to ask yourself why that is?

I hadn’t, until I started writing this. And when I did, I realized that it’s easier for us to connect with the people like us because they often don’t challenge us. It seems pretty obvious, but it’s also a weirdly buried truth.

I’m terrible at math. All of it. Anything beyond simple requires way too much work on my part. In school, when I was doing really poorly in math and working with my teacher, once she believed that I understood a concept, she would ask me to teach it back to her. Laughing out loud – have you ever tried to teach a teacher something you’re terrible at? It’s a challenge, to say the least. But it’s also a great way to ensure that you can back up your actions with logic and your words with truth. So is having a friend that challenges you.

Iron sharpening iron is exactly what it sounds like – two pieces of iron rubbing together to create sharper surfaces. It kind of sounds like a painful process; if iron had feelings. The dead, dull, ineffective pieces are being rubbed away. But through that challenge comes an even better result; a changed, improved, more effective piece of iron.

Relationships aren’t always meant to be easy and carefree. Sometimes, God gives us people that will encourage us, support us, and lift us up. But He also gives us people that question us, challenge us, and call us out – lovingly, of course. We need both. I encourage you to stop only seeking relationships with people who are sure to agree with you. And on the flip side, don’t bring the version of yourself that you think you need to be – show up as who you are. Allow yourself to be sharpened. Remember, it’s not just one piece of iron that’s being affected in the process. Inevitably, you’ll also aid in the sharpening of another.

Write

Do you find yourself drawn to only certain people? Do you find yourself avoiding other types of people? Try to identify the qualities that you typically search for in others, and the qualities you tend to avoid. How can you begin to expand your circle of relationships to be sharpened in all areas of your life?

Pray

For God to provide you with the relationships you need in order to become more like Jesus.
