I shared with the Men On A Mission team and many from our church last night a challenge to keep on encouraging people and to even do that more. Think for a few minutes about the way you encourage people.
First answer a question: do you discourage or encourage the people you are around? Do you help others become bitter or better?
1 Thessalonians 5:11 NASB
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
This mission team has encouraged me and our church to keep on pursuing God’s call and the completion of the new campus. In the mix of the work we have heard many stories about what God is doing in other places and in their lives. It has been incredible to watch, listen and to share.
Hebrews 3:13 NASB
But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
To encourage others helps those we encourage not have hard hearts. To encourage others helps us not have hard hearts.
Go to the next level. Keep on be an encourager and even take that to the next level to encourage even more people!
