Sharp or Sharpening?

Are you sharp?

Or do you sharpen?

 

Do you cut?

Or do you heal?

 

Is your intent to pierce?

Or is your intent to mend?

 

 

What are  your words used for?

 

Godly friendship builds up

and lovingly confronts

 

with goals of

Restoration

Unity

Edification

 

Our words have the power of life

or death

 

to build up

or to tear down

 

and we choose grace

or self-focus

whenever we speak

 

So, may we sharpen one another

mutually

in Jesus’ love

 

– Susie Stewart

 

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

– Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)

 

Knowledge promotes overconfidence and worse arrogance, but charity of the heart (love, that is) looks to build up others.

– 1 Corinthians 8:1 (VOICE)

 

In the same way that iron sharpens iron, a person sharpens the character of his friend.

– Proverbs 27:17 (VOICE)

 

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.

– Proverbs 18:21 (MSG)
