Some of the most impressionable memories are those of personal encouragement. Most of us can easily remember timely words or actions of encouragement that took place even years ago.
So, who have you intentionally encouraged lately? If you want to make a difference in lives, be a purposeful encourager.
Spiritual leaders of any kind—pastors, Sunday school teachers, care group leaders, church staff members, and parents—have a particular responsibility to consistently look for ways to encourage others.
Here is a quick list of 15 ideas for encouragement.
- A Scripture verse
