Sharing communicating teaching instructing knowledge guidance to those who are learned and cannot be taught… or to those that are seeking listening and want to grow. How to avoid wasting time with stiff-necked hardheaded people, instead practice iron sharpens iron.
Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Proverbs 18:1 Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh [and] intermeddleth with all wisdom. 18:2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.
