Iron sharpens Iron:

Iron sharpens Iron. I saw this on a sign for a popular bar and grill. I wondered what in the world. It’s a scripture from Proverbs. Solomon asked God for Wisdom. Wisdom is understanding with experience. Solomon spoke over 3000 proverbs in one day. This is one of those proverbs. It is Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” The meaning of the proverb is it takes a friend to help you achieve your personal goals and that with a lot of abrasions. So when a friend is telling you the truth about something, remember you need that friend to help you. I am still amazed by what people do. If you want to read what Solomon figured out what life was really about read Ecclesiastes.
