Proverbs 27:17: Lift Each Other Up

"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." -- Proverbs 27:17

It is so easy for us to joke with our friends, and put each other down. Many times we may be teasing, and although the others might know that it still puts them down. Think about it; what if you actually hurt someone with your words? Yes, you may be completely kidding, but maybe that person just won't speak up. Maybe they are afraid as being classified as "over-sensitive." It is so easy to get around your friends and joke with each other, but ultimately we truly need to lift each other up. We are children of God! We must strengthen one another, sharpen one another.

We cut each other down like logs being cut by saws.
Instead of picking out flaws and joking about our downfalls,
Why don't we lift each other up like we are called
To do in the name of Jesus Christ?
Can we please be nice, and sharpen our brothers and sisters.
Our words can cut like knives,
But lets use the Word that is like a sword,
Double piercing, for
Us to lift each other up.
Lets fill each others cup!
Instead of being so bent
On focusing on what those hurtful words meant,
Lets lift each other up with words of encouragement!
Ultimately we are no better than anyone else
Pastor, minister, even myself.
I am just as guilty of clowning around,
Putting people down for no apparent reason,
But in every season, we should praise
God for the endless days
He gives us to spend with one another.
Our sisters and brothers, lets lift each other up
Lets fill each others cup!
