Encourage One Another!

These past few weeks have been difficult for many of us as the full impact of new restrictions take hold on our everyday lives. In these difficult circumstances, how do we find encouragement whilst at the same time seeking to help one another? Scripture uses the imagery of being part of a body and a family to describe the essential relationship between Christians.  In reality it means we need one another, and especially in these times we need to be active in encouraging one another.  Why?  Because encouragement makes it easier to love as Jesus loved. Encouragement gives hope. Encouragement helps us through times of discipline and testing. Encouragement nurtures patience and kindness. In short, encouragement makes it easier to live the Christian life.  So, make it your goal to focus on the positive and seek to share something encouraging with someone each day.
