Look for Opportunities to Encourage

Look for Opportunities to Encourage

But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
– 
Hebrews 3:13

Are you one of them? They’re out there right now. There are millions of them. In your city. In your neighborhood. In your church. Perhaps even in your home. You may even be one of them.

Who are they?

People in desperate need of encouragement.

Let’s face it—life can be hard. The Christian walk is a narrow road that can be smooth one minute and bumpy the next, filled with twists and turns and trials and triumphs. All of us face moments when we feel as if it takes everything we’ve got just to keep going.

In those moments, we need an encouraging word. We need someone who will speak the truth to us in love. We need the light of God’s love to fill us with the hope, faith, and strength we need to rise again.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, the apostle Paul challenged Christians to encourage one another. As followers of Christ, we should always be on the lookout for opportunities to encourage others!
