“The task of seeking wisdom, which is often so elusive, is a communal project which should not be undertaken on our own. Life is presented in Proverbs as a journey in which we are constantly faced with a choice between two paths: wisdom and folly. We need good friends who will travel with us, help us discern the right road to take and spur us on to keep walking down it. Such companions will immeasurably strengthen us: ‘As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another’ (Proverbs 27: 17).”
