Iron Sharpens Iron.

   Perhaps you can't stand someone in your life, and you wonder when God is going to change them. Have you ever considered that to change you God may have purposely arranged for you to be in close proximity to that person? He may be trying to toughen you up a little and teach you to have some endurance, to not run from everything that is hard, uncomfortable, or inconvenient.

   God is not going to change anyone you are dealing with until he first changes you. But if you'll quit complaining about everybody around you and, instead, start taking a good look inside and working with God to change you, God will change those other people. Begin today to examine your own heart and see if there are attitudes and motives that you need to change.

 "As Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."

  - Proverbs 27:17
