Anti-Procrastination Challenge: Encouragement
We people like to focus on the negative sometimes, don't we? When a restaurant gives us poor service, we take the time to write them an email or call to complain.
We will be sure to let others know what they did wrong, but sadly it's not nearly as often that we take the time to tell someone “Great job!”
If we're willing to take time out of our day to complain about something, let's make the time to be an encouragement to someone.
Find someone who does a lot of thankless, behind-the-scenes work at church or work, and let them know you've taken note and appreciate what they do.
Encourage someone who may be in the spotlight and everything they do is under scrutiny and is often criticized. Build them up with your words while others may be tearing them down.
Seek out someone who is suffering through a trial and let them know that you're praying for them.
There are so many opportunities to be a blessing that we tend to overlook. I challenge you to find one person today that you can be a blessing to through an encouraging word.
