Has irritation with another person, grown into obsession with their flaws? Their actions resulted in a reaction of frustration mixed with anger because their thorns caused you pain. You wanted them to change.
God, at this point began to show you that you had the same things operating in your life. Your intolerance stemmed from the same faults in yourself. This person sharpens you like knife honed so it is sharp due to the reset of the blade. The things that cause you grief make your character more like Jesus. Thank the Lord, for this one’s presence in your life and forgive.
In the same way that iron sharpens iron, a person sharpens the character of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17 VOICE)
