What has shaped you into the man you are? What is shaping you into the man you want to become? There's a pretty wide range of answers, but the challenge remains to all of us to look inside at what needs "sharpening" and look outside for tools to sharpen us (ie: other men, personal devotion time, our wives, even our kids). Unless I missed something, none of us has "arrived" yet. We're all being molded by our surroundings whether we like it or not. Let's not conform to the pattern set by this world - instead, let's allow ourselves to be transformed by God's power. How? Find the answer in Romans 12:2.
