The Power of Encouragement


021115_HowToBeAnEncourager_2Encouragement. Everybody needs it. Life depends on it. You can give it. Just do it.

When you encourage people, you say or do something that builds their confidence, supports their decision, or stimulates their action. You help them to start. You motivate them to continue. You challenge them to finish.

Encouragers are like filling stations. People look for them when they are empty. People need them when they are low. They fill our tanks with hope. They supply the boost we need to keep us going.

The world needs more encouragers and fewer discouragers. Fewer dream destroyers. Far fewer joy killers. Less people who drain your tank and more people who fill you up.

If you are not an encourager, consider being one. You’ll help many. But the one you will help the most will be yourself.

The generous will prosper. Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. (Prov. 11:25)

Child of God, you can be a cold glass of water to a thirsty soul. You can be a refreshing breeze on a steamy day. You can be an oasis in the desert for the weary traveller. Be an encourager!
