The Daily Grace - Encourage and Help Each Other

When was the last time you encouraged or help a friend, or even a stranger? Were they grateful and thankful that you did this random act of kindness? As brothers and sisters in Christ, we must never get tired in building each other up. God instructed us in His Word in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 that we must encourage and help each other, just as we are already doing.

How can we be a help to others? Speak blessings. Speak words that will make them lead to Christ and experience His love and greatness unto us. Build them up, too. Do the things that will make them soar high and achieve. Help them from their problems and frustrations. 

Many people today, even Christians, are discouraged and defeated. Some come disappointed about life. Our warm encouragement might be just what they need. This is a common blessing that all we can share. This is a basis for mutual guidance. We are responsible to each and everyone for encouragement and bolstering in faith, love, and hope. Other people need our support in being Christian, and we need theirs, too.
