1 Thessalonians 5:11
Words are extremely powerful. They have the ability to build up and the power to tear down and destroy. We might think encouragement is merely “saying” something nice to someone. But if we think that way, we fail to recognize the lasting power our actions can have also. Encouragement is one of the tools that God uses to shape the lives of of bother the giver and the receiver. And it’s a needed tool right now in the life of the church.
