Who Should You Encourage?

“God of our life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and weigh us down; when the road seems dreary and endless, the skies grey and threatening; when our lives have no music in them, and our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost their courage. Flood the path with light, run our eyes to where the skies are full of promise; tune our hearts to brave music; give us the sense of comradeship with heroes and saints of every age; and so quicken our spirits that we may be able to encourage the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life, to Your honor and glory.”

Augustine

Questions:

1. How will encourage someone who may not deserve it?

2. Should you encourage those who were not there for you?

  1. By continuing to let them know even though I think they might not deserve love and encouragement, there’s someone mightier than me that gives them this and so much more.

    We should absolutely encourage the ones who “left us hanging” when we needed them. That will only further prove the love of God and they might become curious seeing His love within us.
