Encourage One Another

Finally. brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with You. 2 Corinthians 13:11

Therefore, encourage one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:18

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sins deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:13

So many times I think what a good job someone is doing, or how much I appreciate that person's positive attitude and approach to life, or what an encouraging blog post someone has written. And far too often, I then go on with my life, enjoying the blessing I have received without encouraging the person who gave me that blessing. But over and over and over in the Bible we are told to encourage one another. God knows that even though He gives the power and strength to live a life of blessing to others, there are still times when the way is rough and He wants us to be there for each other - encouraging each other each step of the way. I can think of a number of people in my life who I could encourage today - my husband who so faithfully fulfills his role as husband and father, my kids, my kids youth leader at church, our pastors who show me Jesus both in word and in deed, writers who encourage me daily. Who in your life could use some encouragement today - a phone call, or a quick email or even a text to say "I'm thinking of you, praying for you, and just want you to know you are a blessing to me." 

Let's go encourage someone today!
