Sharpening Your Blade

Don't Get Cut Anymore!   


I love sweet potato fries! Since I love them I decided to make them myself. As I was cutting the sweet potatoes one of the things I realized is that the knife that I was using was really dull. It was causing me to exert more strength just trying to cut them. So much so, that I literally cut my thumb not once, but three times. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize it wasn't advantages or even safe for me to keep using these dull knives. So, I went to the store a purchased a knife sharpener.


How many times do you have to be passed over for promotions before you realize that you need to sharpen your skilsharpen knifels? A close friend of mine is as sharp as a whip, but because they would not get the necessary training to go to another level they were repeatedly passed over. It wasn't that they didn't know the work. They did. In many instances, they had to train the very person who took their job!


Just like it didn't take a rocket scientist for me to know that I needed to sharpen my knives, it shouldn't take one for a person to know when they need to sharpen their skills. Duh!


I find it amazing that there are so many people who have settled for less because they refuse to expand their knowledge base. Rather than try they elect not to sharpen their brains in order for them to become more competitive. Heck! You need to embrace learning simply just to keep up in our society.


Our society is moving full-speed ahead when it comes to technology. Rather than being on the cutting edge, there are those who have been cut off. They simply have dropped off because they are not willing to enlarge their mindsets through increased learning. Our knowledge base has changed from last year. If you have not done anything to expand your knowledge base you are already behind the eight ball.


Get real! By the time you purchase a computer thinking that you have the newest technology it has already changed. If you don't keep abreast of the facts you are going to find yourself cut off. If you don't believe me, just take a look at the auto industry.


For decades individuals worked jobs and earned hefty salaries. Many of them did not take advantage of the training that was offered. So, when it was time for layoffs to happen they had not developed new skills. They found themselves cut off.  Just like I cut my thumb by using a dull knife, they were cut because of dull brains. In essence, because they had not sharpened their blades with wisdom, understanding, counsel and knowledge, they became unmarketable.


Everyday should be a new day of learning. Why? Because if we live to be 1,000-years old we will never absorb all that this world has for us. This world is forever changing and what we knew yesterday has become obsolete today.


What are you doing to make sure that your skills are not becoming dull and you can't cut it anymore? My recommendation, go get the necessary tools to sharpen your skills and don't cut yourself anymore!

If an ax is blunt and the edge isn't sharpened, then one has to use more strength. But wisdom prepares the way for success. Eccl 10:10 (GW)


{As} iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens the wits of another. Prov 27:17 (GW)


And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; Isaiah 11:2 (KJV)


Any enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts. Prov 24:3-4 (TLB)


Where there is no vision, the people perish: Prov 29:18a (KJV)


I will destroy my people because they are ignorant. You have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be my priests. Hosea 4:6 (GW)


He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. Prov 10:4 (KJV)


A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: Prov 1:5 (KJV)


Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. Prov 3:13-18 (KJV)




It appears as though I am not keeping abreast of the learning curve in our fast-changing society. For whatever reason, probably mostly fear, I have not honed my skills. I will no longer allow irrational and perceived rational thoughts to prevent me from personal, professional and spiritual development. At every opportunity I will seek out ways in order to improve myself and no longer exhibit a POOR (passing over opportunities repeatedly) mentality. Thank you for anointing me with your wisdom, understanding, counsel, might and knowledge as I walk in the fear of the Lord propelled by the Holy Spirit achieve unparalleled success in every endeavor.
