Here’s something you can do every day …
There’s a story told of a newspaper man who, for his own amusement, wrote a note to twenty of his friends containing a single word: “Congratulations!” However, not one of the friends had done a single thing he thought deserved a congratulatory comment, he just wanted to see their reaction to receiving the note.
As it turned out, all 20 of his friends responded with a thank you note without questioning why the message had been sent.
The lesson of this little story? We all need encouragement.
“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing,” 1 Thessalonians 5:11.
The heaviness of someone’s life can be made a little lighter by you sharing a little encouragement with them. Who will it be?
