Today's Photograph . . . . People Who Are Truly Serving The Lord Will Inspire You To Be More Faithful And Subservient  (mq)
Bible Study Verse
Proverbs 27:17
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (NIV)
The past few months have found me dabbling in the art of taxidermy. I have been searching out any and every one of God's creatures I can get my hands on to try to preserve it as beautiful as God meant it to be when it was roaming the earth.

While performing this art, I have found out exactly how important it is to have a sharp kife and to keep it sharp. This verse is telling us that if we wish to be productive and do more of what God has called us to do, it is necessary to associate with people who are more Godly than we are and those who use their days more productively under His direction.
(Dave F)

Action Point
Just as iron sharpens iron - happy, positive people will inspire you to be more positive and happy. People who are truly serving the Lord will inspire you to be more faithful and subservient. 
Try to spend time with people who exhibit those qualities which God may be strengthening in you.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
A steel is used to maintain a fine edge, not to produce one. Create the fine edge by pulling the blade at an angle of 10 degrees or less from the cutting edge; whereas when sharpening with a stone the blade is pushed towards the edge.
