Encouraging God's People 
by Rick Boxx
December 31, 2009

On a day when I needed a little encouragement I received a package in the mail. Inside were three thermal lunch bags from CTA, a business that sells products to encourage God's people.

Puzzled, I looked closer. The following quote was on the outside of each bag, "Excellence comes from handling the details well and with passion." The quote was attributed to me.

My friends at CTA used a quotation of mine to encourage those who received the lunch bags as a gift. In the process they carried out their mission once again by encouraging me.

The Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 taught, "Therefore encourage one another and build up one another."

Part of excellence is encouraging others. Do you know anyone who needs encouraged today?
