One of the things I have tried to do in life and ministry is to ask God how to make those around me better. God does not bring people into our lives so that we can make them just like us. God loves variety and He wants us to be from each other. He’s given us different personalities, different strengths, different interests and different looks.  

God made us all uniquely, so that we can sharpen one another and cause each other to rise up higher in life. If you’re going to be and enjoy your relationships, you’ve got to learn how to appreciate the differences, and learn from the people in your life. If you don’t on the right things, you’ll end up allowing the little irritations to cause you to become resentful. 

Today, remember, nobody is . If you’re going to , you’ve got to be willing to overlook some things in people. Our assignment is not to fix people. Our assignment is to people and make them thrive. Our assignment is to sharpen one another so we can move forward in the plan God has prepared! 

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” ( 27:17, NIV) 

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, thank You for the people You have placed in my life. , me to see them the way You see them, and not judge or look down on them. God, help me to appreciate the ways You allow us to sharpen one another, so that we can help each other fulfil Your plan for our lives. In Jesus’ Name!

    I liked a lot of parts of this blog. But the one thing we always need to remember, even though we are different in backgrounds, and that can make us very different from each other in some ways. Personalities and the like.
    Still, in one thing we need to be alike. And that is in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
    Paul tells us in 1st Corinthians 11:1, To imitate him, just as he imitates Christ.
    So even though, in many things, we may be diverse. In Jesus Christ, we need to be of one mind. God bless, I hope you keep sharing. :)
