Lately I’ve been thinking that we could all use a little encouragement, especially around all of the holidays. Which, I hear Christmas is the most depressing time of the year for many people (and it shouldn’t be).
So I normally make posts online or try to say some encouraging words to people I come across.
One thing I’ve noticed is that people actually take a likening the encouraging words, especially some encouraging scripture passages.
Here’s a few verses to help you with getting started to encourage others!
Remember, we’re all faces trials of many kinds. Why not help lift someone up who is in need… It’s as simple as saying a few encouraging words.
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” -Ephesians 4:29
“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” -Hebrew 3:13
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” -John 14:27
And, my favorite passage in the Bible…
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” -2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Comfort those with the comfort you have received from God!
Keep spreading the love!
