Proverbs 27:17 NLT
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Mark 10:33-35 NIV
“We are going up to Jerusalem”, he said, “And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.” Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher”, they said, “We want you to do for us whatever we ask”.
Mark 10:43-44 NIV
Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
