Here’s an idea:
What if for the next week we treated people in a way that made them feel better because they spent time with us. This means we must be intentional and present to every conversation. This also means that we must be willing to put the things that frustrate us about them aside, and choose to see the good in them.
People will eventually rise to the compliment; the real challenge for us is to authentically build them up enough so they can believe it for themselves!
We do not always know the story about what someone is going through or struggling with. This is our opportunity to be a beacon of hope as we take the time to build them up.
Serve well this week with the time you are given… and THANK YOU for making a difference in the lives of others.
Verse of the week:
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
