  • To sharpen a knife blade you need to rub it against what's called a whetstone sharpener. I'm fascinated by people who think they can get sharper by attending church online or going to worship with hundreds of people but never go to a class or small group where they have to actually talk to somebody. To sharpen your life, you have to have interaction. "One man sharpens another," says Proverbs 27. Surround yourself with people who sharpen your character and you'll be a sharper disciple of Jesus.

Ron: Have you ever seen a knife sharpen itself?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Well, no, of course you haven’t. To sharpen a knife, you need what’s called a whetstone sharpener. Rubbing the knife against it sharpens the blade. You know I’m fascinated by people who think they can get sharper by attending church online or going to worship with hundreds of people—because they can hide—but never going to a class or small group where they have to actually talk to somebody.

Look, to sharpen your life, you have to have interaction—even coarse, sometimes gritty—interaction with others. “One man sharpens another,” says Proverbs 27. Surround yourself with people who can sharpen your character and you’ll be a sharper disciple of Jesus. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
