Hebrews 3 vs 13
“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”
It is amazing how one can be feeling so down and despondent, only to have one little word of encouragement lift us up completely. On the other hand, one can be feeling so happy and having a wonderful day, only to have one little negative word bring them right down.
We are affected by the words of others. Therefore others are affected by what we say too. I remember a particular day where I was feeling completely hopeless about a certain situation, and out of nowhere a friend sent me an encouraging message which then strengthened me to persevere in my dream.
Its easy to encourage the obvious. The challenge comes in seeing the finer points in someones life that needs encouragement. The smallest progress, the little everyday achievements, the things that we take for granted.
Encourage one another daily. Not just as a once off.
This walk is hard. This journey is long. May our love language be one of daily encouragement.
