I like to think of life as a team sport. The reason I say this is because we all need occasional pats on the back from our teammates. As followers of Christ, we are called upon to spread the Good News of Christ, and we are also called to spread a message of encouragement and hope to the world.
Whether you realize it or not, many people that you come in contact with every day are in desperate need of a smile or an encouraging word. We live in a difficult world and countless friends and family members may be troubled by the challenges of everyday life. We don’t always know who needs our help so the best strategy is to make an attempt to encourage all the people who cross your path. The best place to start with encouragement is in your home!
I encourage you today to be a world-class source of encouragement to everyone you meet.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
