Decisions, decisions

How do you make them?

Here's a cool quote I found online at the site for the Mars Hill Graduate School. (Rachael's mama went there)

"It's interesting that we are designed unable to see our own face. We need others to look upon us and interact with us in order to grow in both wisdom and maturity. The Mars Hill Graduate School counseling degree is about learning to read the human soul. We read not to define the other, but instead to interact with the other with the hope of redemption for our neighbor and for ourselves. [Our school] is about the work of understanding the power of relationship to bless, disrupt, convict, and create the arena for God's Spirit to bring freedom and reconciliation."
-Kirk Webb, Counseling Chair

I was thinking about this because it was just so nice to hang with Tiffany (& Betsy & Chloe, too!) this morning. There are certain people who show you other cool ways to think / live that you could see yourself stretching to, you know what I mean? Some people you meet and you just know you're not "like" them, even if you love the way they are. Then there are folks who reflect enough of what you're like but add enough of the exotic/different that it expands you a little, too.

As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend …. As in water face reflects face, so a man's heart reveals the man. Proverbs 27:17, 19
