Someone needs Your Word of Encouragement. God has placed people around you for a reason. When someone open up to you and shares their dreams and plans with you, listen carefully, and give an encouraging word. Don’t be too quick to criticize or give disparaging remarks. Many people lack the personal confidence and personal motivation to pursue even the things they are capable of doing. Many others suffer from self doubt and fear of failure. Others second guess their abilities and are in desperate need for confirmation and approval. Your simple but sincere word of encouragement may be the only fuel needed to turn someone’s dreams into reality. Give it unreservedly. “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
