Encourage Others

I am a member of a Christian ladies’ group. One day I realized that eight of our members could not come to our meetings any more. Why? Because they had moved to a local nursing home.
It is often difficult for people to live in a nursing home. They are no longer independent. They may worry about money or about their relatives.
I knew that these ladies could not be involved in our regular church activities. So I started writing letters to them. I included notes from our ladies’ meetings, prayer requests and encouraging words. Later I started adding information about my family.
Sometimes I delivered the letters personally. It was wonderful to talk with these ladies. I could see that they were strong Christians. I tried to encourage them, but they encouraged me even more!
Our Bible Reading tells us that we should encourage other Christians. I hope that you will share happiness with someone today.
