I posted something on twitter the other day about taking a moment to encourage someone & it got several comments on it. It really shows the internal need we ALL have. The need for encouragement. The need to have some appreciate us. We all desire to be recognized for something. To feel like we have contributed to this life some how, some way.
So make it a point once a day to encourage someone. Everyone gets enough criticism from the world around them but not near enough encouragement. Let them know you believe in them. Let them know they make a difference in your life. Let them know you recognize their contributions to society.
Then...say a prayer for them. Take your encouragement one step further and just say a prayer of blessings over their life. Pray for God's favor to fall on them. Pray for wisdom & direction in their life. This will help you encourage more than you ever thought you could.
So what are you waiting for? Go on...give it a try! I think you just might like it. ;-)
