“Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17).
I enjoy reading books written by those with whom I disagree. I have found little benefit in the purchase of books that leave me nodding my head in agreement; confirming my own beliefs and ideologies with every turn of the page. I have realized, however, a greater benefit from those authors with whom I differ. They stretch my imagination, broaden my perspective, and keep me on my toes. As iron against iron produces a sharp edge, such is the benefit we receive from every person that God brings across our path each day.
