The Right Friends Make A World of Difference

Proverbs 27:17 (KJB) Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

God desires for each of us to encourage and sharpen our friends.  Doing so does not mean that we choose to enter a debate or engage in a war of words with them.

What You Care About Matters

Jude 22 (KJB) And of some have compassion, making a difference.

At Your Wits End Is God

Proverbs 1:7 (KJB) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

A “know-it-all” in this world knows nothing about the wisdom and understanding of God.  Instead, he or she knows about things of this world which often stand in opposition to the will and way of God.  This is foolish living.

On the other hand, a spiritually humble person is ready and willing to learn of God.  ...
