The Power of Encouragement

Have you ever felt under-valued? Have you felt like you don't feel appreciated or wanted by your team? Do you feel like you aren't being encouraged?

If you answered yes to those questions (and even if you didn't), it's important to remember that whatever we give out, we will also get back. If you don't feel encouraged, maybe you should encourage those around you. In Luke 6:38, Jesus says, 

"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

If you want to be encouraged, be an encourager. If you want to feel appreciated, appreciate others. If you want to feel valued, value you those around you. The verse above is a promise from God that He will return what we give. This little thing has the potential to change every environment that you find yourself in. Try to be an encourager this month and watch as everyone around you echoes your encouragement.
