Friends sharpen each other

May 10th, 2017

One of my favourite Bible verses is from Proverbs 27:17. In the NLT it says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” This is talking about the way we build each other up and encourage each other as friends as we go through life.  As we read the Bible and discuss it, as […]
