Encourage

In my time alone in God’s Word today – I read Proverbs 12:25 which says: “Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up”.   This made me think of 1 Thess. 5:11 which says:  “So encourage each other and build each other up…”

Sometimes we try to make applying God’s Word so hard.  It’s not usually as hard as we make it; we just need to DO IT.   In light of all we celebrate this Easter weekend – it shouldn’t be too hard to apply the truth from these passages.  If you’re a follower of Christ, the least you (and I) can do is be an encourager.  Think about it.
