Hi, this is Ryan Koesel, Singles & Care Group & Recovery Pastor from Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church in Allen, TX. with your Inspirational Thought for the day:

Proverbs 27:17 says: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Now, this is a popular verse to put on a side of coffee cup for a men’s ministry. Which is great; however, we need to celebrate the deeper meaning of sharpening one another, to the process of forging iron.
There is intense heat, beating, and fire, then cold, more fire, then hammering, then sparks, then monotonous crafting and honing…

Simply put, God wants you connected to a come-as-you-are community, where He can use the junk in our lives to sharpen us into His perfect craftsmanship.

Think about it, and have a great day.
