Acts 15:32 (NASB) "And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words."As we were finishing up the job, the foreman came by and yelled to us "good job guys!" When we got back to the office, there was a message to meet the foreman in his office. Upon arriving there, he began to share how the customer couldn't say enough about the quality of our work and how pleased they were! Today's verse speaks about encouragement and strengthening others! It doesn't take a lot of energy to pass along some kind words of encouragement to others. The foreman actually gave our crew a new sense that we were doing things correctly and bringing "kudos" to the company. I wonder how many times we can encourage others in the work they are doing for the Lord?! Simple words of strength and encouragement can make the difference in a person's life and bring God the glory. Why not send out an encouraging text or call to someone we see working hard and doing a great job! It could be the encouragement they need to carry on! peace, tom
