Be An Encourager

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up.
                         —Ephesians 4:29

Life is a marathon, not a sprint—a long, demanding race.

Someone needs your encouragement and support to negotiate it; to endure, achieve, finish.

Encouragement has tremendous power. Here is a trio of verses that call us to the mutual ministry of encouraging each other …

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Gal. 6:2).
… encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thess. 5:11).
… encourage the timid (fainthearted RSV), help the weak, be patient with everyone … be kind to each other (1 Thess. 5:14).

Speak words that build up, not beat up.
