Day 270: Iron Man

Proverbs 27:17

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.


Manly relationships are forged through competition on the field of contest.

Authentic manhood relates to other men differently than what this culture espouses. Men relate shoulder-to-shoulder facing a challenge on the field of the contest – it could be a football field, a baseball field, or even a battlefield, but that is where the men relate.

Iron doesn’t sharpen by the caress but by the clash. The rough edges of a man are sharpened when he is around other men. There is nothing like it – and comparable to no other relationship.

I hope that you have authentic manly relationships that encourage you and inspire the best out of you. We’ve designed FivestarMan to express the five purposes of authentic manhood in the rhythm of a man’s life so that he can understand his purposes and express them with a passionate pursuit.

We want to encourage men daily, engage men weekly, get on the field of a contest for an excursion every month, have an encounter with God each quarter of the year, and do great exploits at least once a year.


Other men will sharpen you. Click To Tweet
