How do you encourage others? It’s not something that always come easily to me, but it’s something that is so VITAL to LOVE. It’s so vital to loving on others and reminding others of who they are, and ultimately, who God is.
1 John 4:7-8, ‘Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.’
(Me) thinking about this subject on my walk this evening…
That has lead me to think about my words and actions. How does my life build up or tear down others? How do I care for others and love others and show them just a fraction of the love that God has mercifully poured out on me?
Ephesians 4:29, ‘Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.’
So then, my question is, ‘How do we best encourage others instead of tearing them down?’
