A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17
We all have our blind spots in our lives. We say or do things that often we don’t realize we are doing them until someone points them out. Maybe it’s a bad or annoying habit. Maybe it’s misguided thinking or ideas.
Do you have a loving adversary in your life, someone who challenges you when you need challenging and encourages you when you need encouraged? Do you also have that person to challenge and encourage? It may not be the same person but often it is. Sometimes it’s our spouse but even that person may be too close to notice.
When you get a chance this week, ask someone you know well to point out blind spots. When it’s done properly, it will help to solidify your relationship, but you have to make sure it’s someone you trust.
