Therefore Encourage

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
—-1 Thessalonians 5:11
Today, I received a card while at work. The shiny and cheerful flowers in the front were a nice introduction to the kind words inside. 

It was the second card I had received at work in less than a week’s time. 

Both cards are still on my desk and will most likely remain there. 


Because they will remind me of an important fact:

I am loved and I have people in my life who want to encourage me. 

Is there someone you know that needs some encouragement today? 

Why not write a quick note or email to them?

Send them a card or leave one on their desk at work?

God wants us to build each other up, don’t you agree?

The Greatest of These


Valentine’s Day is coming up.




It’s all about love.

But, what is love?


Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part,  but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.  When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.  For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

—1 Corinthians 13:8-13
