Proverbs 27:17 New Living Translation (NLT)

17 As iron sharpens iron,

    so a friend sharpens a friend.

Isn’t it amazing how that your beloved friend has the ability to be so “frank” and “bold,” speaking the truth in love and another person saying the same thing goes unnoticed?  I might even find the same words from a different person offensive.  Perception of motives…..

This scripture alludes to the idea that building quality interpersonal relationships is paramount to becoming a better person.  When we have “filled” the emotional bucket (positively) the person is more able to listen and grow as a result.
