Be encouraged to Be encouraging...

After speaking with a dear friend of mine, I was left thinking...don't you love those kind of conversations??? We were talking about does “encouraging others” ever get, well...old? Do you ever grow tired of the same person coming to you with the same struggles, the same situation? Just so you can tell them the same thing?

I thank God that we both agreed that our answer to this question was NO!

As believers in Jesus Christ, we are all apart of the same body. So when a fellow sister or brother is weak, why would we NOT want to encourage them? When you think of our 3 senses...eyes to see, ears to hear, mouth to speak, when one of these fail, the other senses are increased in their abilities to operate. They all kick in to allow the body to function as best it can. Have you ever noticed when you go to a restaurant the lights are dim? That's because your ability to taste is increased due to your ability to see being decreased and you are able to truly enjoy to “taste” of your food.

Scripture will speak about weak or babes in Christ. Would you leave a baby alone, or grow tired of a baby because they have not mastered the art of walking??? If you have a carnal heart, then yes, maybe you would. But if you truly have Christ in your life, you would never grow weary of doing good.

So I say to my fellow believers, don't grow weary in doing good. Don't grow tired of encouraging another who is in the same body as you are...Christ. Because Hebrews 3:13 says “but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today”, lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” Don't be deceived. Listen and help encourage another through scripture.

Encouraged to be Encouraging...


  1. I agree. It never gets old. We need it daily. We are tempted and it does sometimes seem that the grass is greener on the other side, but then when it hits that the other grass needs mowing too, it don't look as pretty then. Let's encourage one another often.

  2. We need it daily. when we go through the "peaks" of life, we need to understand that the valley is just ahead. Since our struggles differ, we have to pray for a heart to be understanding to ALL situations. Because Queen, I would work your very last nerve!!!! : )
