One of the most powerful things one person can share with another is encouragement.  Encouragement can stop a suicide, a divorce, and countless other tragedies.   A word of encouragement can heal someone who is broken and wounded.  It can give someone the courage to keep trying.

Our world is full of negative, bitter, uncaring people who can't say anything good about anyone or anything.  The people of God should be a radiant contrast to the people of the world.  We should bubble over with the joy of the Holy Spirit.  We should find it easy to be positive and uplifting.  Are you an encouragement to those around you?  Don't let someone die from neglect and lack of encouragement.  Share you Christian joy by encouraging those around you on a regular basis!
