Iron Sharpens Iron
As God’s disciples, we are to be identified by the love we have for one another. This love requires an attitude of humility and patience on our part. Difficulties can arise among brethren, but the solution is not to run away or leave, but to patiently work with one another.
To come to listen, to understand, to forgive and to learn to love one another. This process involves a sharpening of godly character within us so we can be known as His people and be a part of His Spiritual Temple.
This sharpening is the process God uses to refine us and develop within us the attributes that will be needed to be effective leaders in the Kingdom of God when Christ returns.
