“Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.”
Philemon 1:7 NIV
Happy Friday! It’s a great time to spread God’s love everywhere you go. In a town that has been destroyed by a hurricane, faces dripping with despair are commonplace. What can we do to ease pain in a situation like this? Of course, we can offer our services to help with cleanup. We can feed people who are hungry. We can assist with finding places for homeless. We can invite people to church and share God’s love. Is there anything more?
Encouragement is one of the best gifts we can give one another that doesn’t cost a dime. TobyMac once said that “with every person you meet you can either bring life or bring them down”. People can detect your kindness and attitude by looking at your face and body movements. They can even detect it in your voice over the telephone.
So, take time to smile and give someone an encouraging word. God bless you.
