Encourage Others

I know that God wants me to encourage other people. 1 Thessalonians 5:11a says, “So encourage each other and make each other stronger in faith.”
But sometimes I am afraid I will say the wrong thing. And sometimes I just don’t know what to say. So I have found a way to obey God and encourage others. How? I write my encouragement to other people.
If I write something down, it gives me a chance to think about my words. I write and re-write until I am sure I am saying the right thing.
You can write encouraging words, too. Write a letter or a poem. Write a song or a short note. Or write an e-mail or send a text. These are ways that you can encourage someone who is disappointed or someone who needs love.
Encourage someone you know today. And remember to be patient and loving.
