So, I challenge you to encourage someone today!
In Romans chapter 1, Paul said this, in verses 11 & 12, "11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— 12 that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith."
Who can you spend time with today, either face to face, or on the phone and encourage? That person doesn't even have to be facing a crisis. You might not even know what they are dealing with. Just say something nice to someone today.
Paul also told the people in Thessalonians 5: 11 to, "11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
Life has it's ups and downs. We could compare it to a roller coaster ride sometimes. Mountains and valleys. That's just how things work out.
Having people in our lives who pray for us, hold us accountable, and honestly care about our well beings is amazing! You have those people. Take time today to thank them and tell them how much you care. Remind them of how much God loves them and that He is always there for them. You will be blessed and so will someone else!
Go ahead! I dare you!
