“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today.”
God wants us to be an encourager, to be a giver, to use our talent that he gave us. We can only do this if we get our eyes off ourselves and focus on what we can do for others. We must become givers instead of takers. I strongly feel that if we get our minds off our own problems and begin to help others that we won’t have to worry about our own needs. God will take care of them for us. If we help and care for the needs of others God promises to watch over us and care for us also. I have found out over the years that when I have felt down during a day I always would feel better after I had made my daily rounds in the hospital and talked to the employees. There was always someone I would talk to that had problems much worse than mine and was in a much worse situation. I believe one of the best things each of us can do when we are having problems of our own is to help solve somebody else’s problem. No matter how bad we feel or how bad we think our problems are, somebody else is in a much worse position and has bigger problems than we have. Finding these people and helping them is going to make us feel much better about ourselves. Reach out wherever you are to encourage the people you come into contact with today, talk to them, encourage them and let them know that you care about them. God will give you a joy about yourself and you will find that he will lessen your burdens as they will begin to seem like small burdens as he will bless you.
