Encouragement is vital January 25, 2010

This is one area I plan to work  harder at. Unfortunately, too often I have been the leader in sentence three.

The message of encouragement is vital for every organization, business, family, and individual. From the platform of leadership comes the opportunity to speak that much needed word of support. Yet because a leader is occupied with many important matters, expressing words of encouragement can easily be overlooked. Making the effort to intentionally speak positive, uplifting words brings blessing to others and encourages our own hearts as well.

After reading from the Law and the Prophets, the synagogue rulers sent word to them saying, “Brothers, if you have a message of encouragement for the people, please speak. Acts 13:15

Prayer: Dear Lord, I know how important it is to be noticed and appreciated. Help me to make the time and take the time to be purposeful in speaking words of encouragement to those around me. Give me words that bless others and honor You. I give You praise for always being the ultimate source of encouragement. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

  1. Hi. Just like you, my greatest desire is to be an encourager. It takes so little to give a word, a pat at the back, a smile to someone who needs it so badly. Lord, with your words let me bless others.

    Thank you and blessings to you.

    Gladwell
