One thing that I have learned from my wife, Arlene is that there is a mental sharpness that comes from being around good, righteous people. A meeting of the minds can assist people in seeing their ideas with new clarity, refine them and shape them into brilliant insight.
This requires partners who can challenge each other and stimulate thought. It requires individuals who can focus on an idea without involving their ego in the discussion. It requires individuals who know how to attack the thought and not the thinker. Two friends who bring their ideas together and assist each other become sharper. The right friendship, the right relationship, will always make you better. By the way, I have just described my wife Arlene and I. We thank God for that precious relationship. Together we are better.
He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.
Proverbs 27:17 Proverbs 13:20
