Look for Opportunities to Encourage

Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11Hebrews 10:24-252 Corinthians 1:3-4Isaiah 43:5

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 like 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!  Are you?
