Gifting Encouragement

“So encourage each other and build each other up”… 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Encouragement is a gift. And, guess what? It’s Free!         
. “Enthusiasm encourages positive behavior”
. “Ask for advice often. Offer advice sparingly”
. “Be kind to unkind people. It gets to them”
. “Love first if you long to be loved”
. “You will encourage more people by listening than by talking”
. “A pleasant expression increases your face value”
. “Personal happiness is most easily gained by bringing happiness to others”
. “Criticism becomes constructive when you make it a challenge”
. “Be happy for others in their good fortune”
. “Never expect gratitude, but always express appreciation”
. “Compliment people as soon as it occurs to you”
. “Just as you can have false modesty, you can encourage insincerely. Learn to be a sincere encourager”
. “Encourage those who look up to you”
. “Make it a habit to encourage youngsters”

Jesus,
We want to be your affirming voice to all we meet. Teach us your ways Lord. Amen
