A Little Encouragement
"Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works." Hebrews 10:24
Have you ever needed a little encouragement? If only someone would come beside you giving you the spark of positive support you need. We've all had those moments where a little encouragement goes a long way. So what if that happened every day? If we always sought to motivate, encourage each other to new heights ... how would things look.
Here's the reality, the world has enough discouragement. There are people in our communities feeling discouraged by life. There are brothers and sisters in Christ in our community of faith experiencing discouragement. What if we motivated each other to acts of love and good works? What if we took those acts of love and good works out into the communities we serve? What if our encouragement was contagious? There is a world around us that needs to be encouraged. Let's go encourage them!
Just this week I experienced what a little encouragement can mean to someone. It can take an overwhelming situation and offer a spark of light. We can be those purveyors of light in our family, our work place, our neighborhood, and our community. We need to be intentional about finding places where we can motivate one another to acts of love and good works. It can be a game changer for the people in our life.
I hope you will be in worship this Sunday. We will all be encouraged to be people of radical encouragement for each other. See you in church!
