Do you recall a time when someone encouraged you? Perhaps you were frustrated or overburdened. Encouragement is a blessing to us in difficult times. You have the opportunity to encourage others and give them support just by writing them a note or offering to listen to their frustrations. You can help them see their strengths, remind them of God’s presence, and then look for ways you can lighten their burden. Giving advice isn’t always helpful, so just listen and show you care. When the Holy Spirit is at work in us, we show kindness and caring to others, and we can “encourage one another and build each other up.” (I Thessalonians 5:11). The Good News Translation of Ephesians 4:9 says, “Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you.” May God bless your week! Diane Cooke, Pastor, Presbyterian Churches, Willow Springs and Mtn. View. more
