A man is blessed when he has a friend who challenges him. To challenge a friend is to urge him on with confidence to reach his potential. Without the challenge of a trusted friend, we risk complacency. Apart from such inspiration, opportunities may be missed or potential may be left untapped. The challenge of a friend may be the wind to breath life into an otherwise mediocre existence. Sometimes, the inspirational friend is a woman.
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) A woman often makes a great piece of iron!
How your challenge is unique
Maybe there’s a man in your life who needs a feminine friend to challenge him to see his potential, believe in the possibilities, and envision his impact. I remember such “little men” in my first grade classrooms. Do you know such a man? Maybe he’s a boy, an older father, or a co-worker who needs the tender, optimistic challenge you can offer, the kind of urging he can trust. Maybe he’s the man who shares his name and shares your bed and calls you his own, and maybe his spirit is parched and longing for an infusion of sincere challenge. Is there a guy in your life who needs a challenge he can trust to inspire him to greatness?
“The heart of her husband trusts in her,and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm,all the days of her life.” (Proverbs 31:11-12)
The question your challenge may help answer
Do you ever wonder how great the guy in your life could possibly be? He may secretly be wondering the same thing. He might just need you to challenge him to find out.
