Metal to Mettle…. VOL 105
In my experience, that usually means I’m not going to get some top-of-mind, sugar-coated, pithy answer. It might mean I’m going to get an answer that is hard to hear…but worth listening to.
The Bible has this wonderful analogy of speaking into another’s life for their good. “As iron sharpens iron…” You can almost see the sparks flying and feel the heat when the metals collide. It’s a spectacular occurrence.
There is pounding and pressure and light as the metals react to each other. Each sacrificing something of itself… being changed from rough objects of unknown potential into useful tools…even weapons.
This is no accidental collision…it is purposeful…it is meaningful…it yields something better for both metals to have undergone this beating of sorts…this holy process.
