Last night in our home group through our church we discussed encouragement. We are instructed to encourage others frequently in the Bible.

During our study last night, I learned that we can encourage others in a lot of ways including:

- Listening to them
- Just being there for them
- Saying nice things to them
- Smiling at them
- Laughing with them
- A hug

We even discovered that the way we handle our struggles can be an encouragement to others.

All of these things have one thing in common, they all show love for others. And isn’t that what Jesus commands us to do?

So who are you going to encourage today and how will you do it?

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

One of my favorite verses.

That does not surprise me one bit because you are one of the best encouragers I know!
