Encouragement

I Thessalonians 5:9-11, “9For God has destined us not for wrath but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live with him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.”  

Encouragement moves us from self-focus/self-pity to other focused, which lifts our spirit and encourages us. Encouragement is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Unfortunately, people seldom think of encouragement as a gift because it seems so ordinary. But it isn’t. Encouragement is actually quite rare {because it is seldom given} and it is so valuable {because it is so meaningful to the recipient}. Who can you encourage today?
