Are you dull, dim or discouraged?
In Proverbs 27:17 in The Passion Translation, we are told:
It takes a grinding wheel to sharpen a blade, and so one person sharpens the character of another.
Proverbs 27:17 TPT
In Matthew 5, Jesus said:
“Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop? And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16 TPT
Then, in Galatians, we read:
And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming! Take advantage of every opportunity to be a blessing to others, especially to our brothers and sisters in the family of faith!
Galatians 6:9-10 TPT
God says: Stir up your gifts. Be bold as lions. I am with you in every place. None of this has caught me off guard. Hide in me and you’ll be given rest.
