A friend recently shared a video on social media about a boy with cerebral palsy that was determined to participate in a race with his classmates. As the race went on, the boy fell behind the rest of his classmates. One of the teachers ran up to the boy to offer encouragement and was soon joined by the boy's classmates. Together they offered encouragement that the boy appreciated.
The actions of the teacher and the classmates of the boy remind us that our actions matter. What we choose to do and say impacts those around us. We can choose to discourage others or we can be a source of encouragement. When we know God and are filled with His love, our choice should be obvious. We should want to encourage others, to build them up in love, and to share God's glory with them! We should be generous with the love we have so that we can all be refreshed!
Choose to encourage others so that everyone can be refreshed!
Thank You for Your love and for refreshing me. Help me to share Your love so that others can be refreshed. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
