Encouragement

All people need to be encouraged. We encourage little children as they start to walk. We encourage teenagers while they are playing sports. Even older people need encouragement.
Christians need encouragement, too. New Christians need to be encouraged to read God?s Word and to pray. Older Christians need to be encouraged when they are facing problems.
Verse 25b of our Bible Reading says, ?…we should meet together and encourage each other.? When Christians meet together they help each other to stand strong for Jesus. They also remind each other that Jesus is coming back soon to take His followers to live with Him forever.
I hope that you will be an encourager today. Look for a person who needs help. Visit someone who is sick or in prison. Smile at every person you meet. And remember to share the Good News about Jesus with them, too.
