Remember moments of encouragement the Lord has sent
Luke 2:19 "But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart."
As God's children, we know they come from Him
How often have words of encouragement come right when we needed more courage! And how often do they come from Him, but come through His children?
A community of encouragement
Hebrews 10:24-25 "And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
How grateful we are for even a drop of encouragement; how amazed we are when others encourage by word and by deed!
A call to reciprocity
Luke 6:36-37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”
