When you have an opportunity to deepen a relationship with a truth-teller in your life, take it! (Christian Unity Ministries)
Here’s a searching question: “Who is friend enough to speak the truth to you in love?” Do you have a friend like that? It may be difficult to “speak the truth in love,” but it is often necessary. Someone wrote, “We need to be iron to one another and allow others to be iron for us so we may be shaped and sharpened throughout life.” It would be healthy to find such a friend and to be one!
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend (Proverbs 27:17).
