    • Why iron? (and not wood or another material)? It is a metal of war implements. As men, we are in a war daily to standup as leaders to the service of each other, our family, our community. The world says ‘lay low/ go with the flow’…we battle against the status quo and act otherwise.
    • For iron to sharpen, it must contact other iron. Thus, we need to purposely get into the lives and personal business of each other. This means reach out to a brother in need, walk in his shoes, help solve his problems.
