Scripture Lesson

Proverbs 27:17; Hebrews 10:24-25

Iron sharpens iron,
and one person sharpens the wits of another.

And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
