*LIFE TONIC*

*Proverbs 27:17 -*
*As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.*

From the beginning, man was not made to be alone. Man was created and configured by God to be a friend to one another. As iron has the capacity to sharpen another iron, so a friend has the same capacity to sharpen another friend.
Who is a friend? A friend is an associate who provides assistance. A friend is someone that can stand by you when others reject you. A friend is a person who backs or supports you when in need. A friend is who you are, what you are made to be. Our society today is in dare need of 'a friend.'

There is mutual benefit in the rubbing of two iron blades together; the edges become sharper, making the knives more efficient in their task to cut and slice. We are to sharpen one another - in times of meeting, fellowship, group chat, or any other interaction.
*"A friend in need is a friend indeed" - Quintus Ennius.* A friend who helps at a difficult time is a person who you can really rely on.

Oftentimes we tend to set ourselves as great friends to our dead ones. We celebrate most of our friends when they are dead than when they were alive. We can't sharpen our friends when they are dead. As 'a friend' we are, now is the time to sharpen one another. Sharpen your friend now with your good words of encouragement, with your time, with your money to reach out to your friend in pains and sufferings. 'A friend' is what we need at our homes, offices, churches, and business places. You are that 'a friend' I need to achieve greatness in my life. I am that 'a friend' you need to hold the ladder tight while you climb up. As long as I can't do without you as 'a friend', you can't do without me as well.

A song artist - *Hezekiah Walker;* sang thus:
I need you, you need me.
We're all a part of God's body.
Stand with me, agree with me.
We're a part of God's body.
It is is his will, that every need be supplied.
You are important to me, I need you to survive (2x).
I pray for you, you pray for me.
I love you, I need you to survive.
I won't harm you with words from my mouth.
I love you, I need you to survive.
It is his will, that every need be supplied.
You are important to me, I need you to survive.

Beloved, may God ignite the fire of being 'a friend' to someone today in Jesus Name.

*Shalom*
