Iron sharpens Iron

I had dinner with my youngest brother the other night and was reminded why it’s important for men to have other men in their lives. We are both extremely busy but when we get together our conversations are usually pretty substantial. He reminded me of a conversation we had a couple of years ago that completely changed the course of his life. It wasn’t long at all but the impact was lasting.

This is the value of deep relationships. Over a period of years you build capital with each other that can be used to sharpen one another unlike any other type of relationship. When you feel like someone actually cares for you then even advice given in casual conversation is so much more meaningful.
