ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER
One way, in which we can be a people of hope, is to be a source of encouragement to others.
I have discovered that it is a matter of those, who are a little stronger, encouraging those, who are a little weaker.
Another thing that I have discovered is that those who are a little stronger can become those who are a little weaker.
It is for this reason that when we are feeling a little stronger, that we be a source of strength and hope to others, so that they in turn can be a source of hope and strength to us when we feel weak.
We must seek out opportunity to encourage and give hope to others.
Hebrews 10:24 Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Trust God to give you creative ways to reach out and encourage others.
Isaiah 35:3-4 With this news bring cheer to all discouraged ones. Encourage those who are afraid. Tell them, “Be strong, fear not, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.”
Kindness is another way in which we can bring hope to others.
We live in a ruthless world where everyone is concerned about himself or herself.
Selfishness is the dominant sin.
When we begin to show kindness we begin to reverse the effects of selfishness and create an opportunity for God to touch the lives of others.
As we show kindness we can become a source of hope and a people of hope to others.
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you because you belong to Christ.
I have discovered that everyone responds to kindness.
I remember once reading a quote in a diary. It said: ‘Be gentle with everyone, for everyone is facing his or her own challenges’.
Become a person of hope as you show kindness to others.
