From a Christian view I seek to encourage and challenge the believer, while inviting the unbelievers to consider Jesus as their God. (2 Timothy 4:2)
Scripture passages important to this blog are the aforementioned Proverbs 27:17 alongside the name of the site. In addition, consider 2 Timothy 4:2 - "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction."
Another complimentary verse is - Hebrews 3:13 - "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called 'Today,' so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness."
