A more literal translation of our Iron Men verse (Proverbs 27.17, quoted at the bottom of this post) is "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens the FACE (~or countenance~) of another."
Does your face / countenance... (personality?)... need some sharpening? Has it been rather dulled by this world?
I encourage ALL of you to attend one of the soon-to-be-starting Iron Men Small Group Bible Studies. We're actually studying the book of Proverbs together. Listen, there are details of my character & your character that may be small enough to "escape notice" when we're studying the thundering of the Law or the broadsides of the Prophets ... and yet, they matter. And they are decisive in what kind of life we end up living.
This is the arena of the Proverbs. What am I like to live with? To employ? How do I manage myself? My time? My affairs? What kind of habits am I developing? What would wisdom have to say to me about how I talk? What my aims are? What kind of friend I am? What kind of neighbor I am? What I do with my money? How I approach my God?
Proverbs gets inside our skin about all of those things & more & points us to the glory that is Christ & the "skill in living well" that is found by those who follow him with all their hearts. Get in a group! I am. They start next week!
