Proverbs 12: 25
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad
How awesome is it to get a compliment? How super awesome is it to get a compliment when you are feeling weary or blue? Today’s Proverb tells us to encourage each other.
In the world of self-reliance there are times when we set goals that for some reason or another do not go as planned. You may plant a crop of food and then heavy rains ruin it or birds eat all your seed. I know these things are a learning experience on when not and how not to do things, but they can get you down. It is our responsibility to encourage each other in this community. If your friendship is only online via written messages it can be hard to tell if someone is down. Look for key words. Offer the assistance of wisdom if you have been through it before. Even if it doesn’t seem as though someone is down if you see a struggle because you know it is hard, remember to encourage them.
