Inspiration #27

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
–Proverbs 27:17

I was talking to my boyfriend about why church/fellowship is so important to our spiritual growth and thought of this verse.

I also compared the importance of fellowship to the things that help a plant grow. Plants need sun, soil, water, air, various nutrients from all those sources etc. to grow. Too much or too little of any of those parts probably isn’t good, and could result in the plant not growing properly. Our spiritual growth is similar. We need fellowship, we need prayer, scripture, service etc. for us to grow closer to God. If we don’t get enough of something, our growth becomes skewed.
