We all can do this...

“One of the highest human duties is the duty of encouragement.” - William Barclay

We all need to be encouraged at some stage in our lives. When things are looking bleak there is nothing like a kind word to give us a little push in the right direction. The beauty of encouragement is that we don't have to be qualified to encourage another person - we just have to be willing to do something.

Think about a time in your life when someone has encouraged you - how did that make you feel? Is it possible that someone in your life needs a word of hope from you today. Offering encouragement could be the greatest gift you could pass onto them right now. It will cost you nothing, but it could mean the world to them!

Joshua 1:9 - Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

·     Hebrews 3:13 “Encourage one another daily…”

      Here is a word from St. Paul that I offer you as a word of hope: 

2Thessalonians 2:16 - "May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”

Living in Grace
