Proverbs 27:17 
Iron sharpeneth iron; 
so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

It happens to me  -  a challenge by a friend that makes me better.

My run times are better when my hubby is beside me.
I am more conscious of my eating when others around me are being careful.
I work harder when I know someone will be checking up on me.

So - this Proverb reminds me to choose my friends wisely.
If I want to be "iron," I must surround myself with "iron."
I want to choose friends who will challenge me,
those who are not afraid to rebuke, challenge, and exhort.

I must also be that friend.
I must maintain a high standard.
I must encourage and challenge my friends.

Get Sharp ... and Keep Sharp.
