The Need for Community
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). My entire life, I have been around individuals that took this phrase to heart – mainly in the way of athletics. The reality was as an employee, coach, or player, you won or lost as a team and that was understood. I am thankful for the experiences I have had in athletics because each team I worked with focused on building a community which allowed every single coach and player to push each other in a respectful and honest environment.
