Who Encourages You?

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Tonight we are in Tallahassee.  We had the chance to have dinner with one of our young ladies from church.  Tessa.  Because she is in college now, Anneka doesn't get to see her as much.  So having dinner with her was special.

Watching the two of them interact with each other is a sight.  Even though the two of them are 5 years apart, they can have some great conversations.  Both are driven, single minded, strong personalities with sharp, sarcastic senses of humor.

While some people would say that they would probably fight all the time, they actually draw strength from each other.

That's how God designed us.  To encourage and help one another.  That's why Jesus said that things like gossip, criticism and devaluing each other were wrong.  We were never created to be treated that way.

Who can you encourage today?  Who will encourage you?  Take a few minutes to text someone or make a phone call.  Just a few words make all the difference.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to be a great friend to someone today.  AMEN
