“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17 ESV
When men interact they are better off for it.
The one thing every man needs in his life is other men. The interaction with others provides the encouragement and accountability to live a life on purpose. When men stand alone they will drift and loose their focus. This lose of focus will lead to destructive decisions.
In the military they often call this concept a “band of brothers”. Those who fight together stay together. Recently I was speaking to a vet who said after retiring from the service what he missed most were those he served with. For years he would travel from city to city just to be near those he served alongside. It was in the relationships that gave him a family that kept him grounded.
Lord, bring into my life men who I can do life with. May I also be the encourager in the lives of others.
