Spreading God's Love Thru Prayer
"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." Proverbs 27:17
True friends will put an edge on your life. They will make you a sharper person. Not all friends do that for me, but my best friends do.
Have you ever had a friend who loved you so much that he would even hurt you in order to help you? Proverbs 27:6 says, "Faithful are the wounds of a friend: but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." What truer words of love can be spoken than from the heart of a friend who is going to spend an eternity with you? Even if those words hurt they are words that will heal.
Do you have a friend who sharpens you as iron? Then forward this email to your friend as a word of thanks.
Lord, thank You for placing someone in my life who genuinely cares about my well being. Let their love for me embolden me to genuinely love others in return. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
