PR30 – Day 13  (March 7)

“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”
Proverbs 27: 17

It is so good to have people in your life that can speak truth to you.  People that are not afraid to tell it like it is, even when they know it will be hard for you to hear.  It is good!  You know those friends that will just speak it. Sometimes you leave frustrated, sometimes you leave encouraged, but you always leave changed.  This whole process is something I have come to appreciate more since living in community with roommates (since college).

I encourage you to listen, to receive, to be humble when someone is sharing with you an area in which you are growing.  It’s okay.  We are not perfect.  We know the perfect One and are being made more in his image daily.  Don’t beat yourself up, just listen and allow the Spirit to change you from the inside out.  He cares about our hearts, our motives, those deep things that are unseen.

“Better is open rebuke than hidden love.  Faithful are the wounds of a friend, profuse are the kisses of an enemy.” ~Proverbs 27:5-6
