Hebrews 3:13 “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”
I would like to hope that one day I could be a great encourager. It is not an easy job, but in my opinion, it is probably one of the most rewarding gifts that you can have from the Spirit.
Even if that is not your gift, you can still be an encourager. In fact, the Bible states that we are to encourage each other as believers and followers of Christ on a daily basis.
Because when you encourage others, it raises everyone’s spirit and their walk with Christ. When you encourage others, it raises yourspirit and your walk with Christ.
There is nothing about encouragement that does harm. And there is nothing about encouragement that ever says too much is not good.
In the workplace, encouragement can make all the difference to the atmosphere and performance of the people that work around you as well as yourself. If you are an employer or in management, your ability to encourage will make a difference about how you are perceived and the opportunities that you can create to witness.
When I ponder those who have changed my self-image I don’t remember those that criticized and disciplined. But I do remember those in leadership above me who encouraged and lifted me to perform on a different level.
Today, ask God to give you an opportunity to encourage at least three people. Then make it a discipline to do it everyday. You will be blessed because of your new habit.
Have a blessed day.
