11/23/12 Daily Devotion

2 Corinthians 7:13 By all this we are encouraged. In addition to our own encouragement, we were especially delighted to see how happy Titus was, because his spirit has been refreshed by all of you.

Encouragement is essential to any church or individual Christian. Without encouragement, we will fall off the path of righteousness. Without encouragement, we will fall back into the using of sinful mannerisms. Without encouragement, we will change who we have become and revert back into the person that once walked within our shoes. Encouragement does not have to be something elaborate, such as a parade, but it needs to be present, even in the slightest of ways. We can share our gratitude for a job well done. We can share how much a person’s faith has empowered our own. We can lift up an effort, even if it missed the mark. There are many ways to lift others up and encourage them to become greater servants of God. Have others been encouraged by you?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become a model for encouragement. Help me become a lifter of souls and an encourager of hearts.
