Hi!

Hi, I'm Tim! I saw note on a mutual friend posted by little_tigress (there's a name that's a blast from the past for me!) on facebook, and clicked on it. We used to be together on other fora on the past, and I thought I'd say hi, as I appreciate a place to chat about the things of Christ.

I love Proverbs 27:17, at the heading. I also like that it means the opposite to what most people think it means. Iron doesn't sharpen iron. Never has, never will, since the exact quote is 'As iron sharpens iron'. Iron bluntens iron, but it ALSO removes the knicks from the blade. You use iron to ease out iron, before you sharpen it. That's what believing friends do for each other. We don't sharpen each other up to become aggressive weapons, we ease out the knicks in each other, before God (the rock, which DOES sharpen iron) sharpens us and prepares us for his purposes. Just the biblical pedant in me coming out...
