Be a World-Class Encourager
Pastor Phil Sommerville
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
I need encouragement. You need encouragement. We all need encouragement. Can I get an "amen"? We are restored and energized by encouragement. We are attracted to people who encourage us. So, here are a few ideas for being an encourager. Be sure to practice them, starting today, and be blessed.
Notice: Being noticed is encouraging. Stop and greet others, especially people you don't know, with a smile. A smile by itself brightens people's days.
Affirm: Comment on a behavior or characteristic you appreciate or admire in another person.
Send a note: When you think of something encouraging about someone jot it down and send it right away.
Pray with someone: Praying for others is powerful. Praying with them, encourages them.
Invite: Ask someone to do something with you. Going out to eat is usually a winner.
Help: When you see someone who needs help, don't head the other direction, offer to help.
