God's love FOR us gives us the REASON to encourage others.
God's love IN us gives us the ABILITY to encourage others.
God's love THROUGH us gives us the WAY to encourage others.
When was the last time you "encouraged" someone. Encouragement is the
best way to lift up people and when you lift up people, God lifts up you!
At this time of the year when you purchase a gift for someone, you may come across one of those items that when you buy it they throw in a FREE gift. I purchased some cologne some time ago and when I paid for it the lady behind the counter gave me a brand new travel bag because I bought the cologne! I was not expecting it and when she threw that in the mix I felt better and I am certain that when she say my smile she felt pretty good too.
Encourage someone today and see if God doesn't just throw something else your way that you did not expect. You can lift someone else up because God has lifted you. His love has covered you and strengthened you to be all that you were designed to be. Can I tell you something today...YOU ARE AMAZING! Now go encourage!
