“Anxiety weighs a person down but an
ENCOURAGING WORD cheers a person up.”
Has anyone ever spoken a few words to you that have simply made your day? A few words that have lifted, encouraged & strengthened you when everything else looked bleak. We can make a huge difference in someone else’s life simply by speaking a few well-chosen & uplifting words. A few kind words can really make someone’s day.
Todays verse reminds us about the effect of speaking encouraging words. We understand that the words we speak are powerful. They are vessels carrying either life or death [Proverbs 18:21]. What we speak can influence someone for years to come. Destructive words will cut & wound deeply. Encouraging words will lift & help someone make it through their day, week & year.
Don’t underestimate the impact that our words have. Be on the lookout for people who need encouragement. Look for those who seem heavy, worried or anxious. Tell them what God’s Word says about them [Jeremiah 29:11]. Let them know things will change. Share the good news of the gospel for a great future. Lift their day with a few well-chosen & encouraging words.
This week let’s get passionate about encouraging others. Let’s become the encouragement that someone else needs. Let’s allow the impact of our words to be positive & uplifting. Let’s bring light into their darkness & hope into their hopelessness. It’s all done through the words we share with them. So let choose words that encourage, build & lead to a great future.
