"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." - Proverbs 27:17
After a long deserved holiday we welcome all our students back to their Meta home. We kicked off the term with Love Life! Why do you love life, what should friend relationships look like, parent relations, siblings all in a contemporary African setting.
Diving in to day one we spoke about friendships, known as yster vriende (Iron Friends). These are the friends that are there no matter what. They hold up the mirror of truth on your life and can keep you accountable through the seasons in your life. Friends can also be divided in the spheres of friendship: friendly acquaintances, mentor friends and yster friends. Keeping these close friends near to your heart means that they have key influence in your life and that you in turn also have a deep regard for them. Friendships build the foundation of your journeys here on earth, they build us up and allows God to love us through them.
