"Never mind my name," was the response; "but if you only knew how you have made me feel hundreds of times, and what a happy home you have given me! God bless you!"Then she was lost in the crowd, but she had encouraged a man whose books are in every library, and whose name is dear to the universal church.
Heaviness in the heart of man makes it stoop: but a good word makes it glad. (Proverbs 12:25)
I did a little study today:
I was so glad to read this (below) in one of the evening devotions written by C.H. Spurgeon this week about Encourage him! I will share it with you:
Brethren, take Deuteronomy 1:38 as God's message to you. Labour to help others, and especially strive to encourage them. Talk cheerily to the young and anxious enquirer, lovingly try to remove stumblingblocks out of his way. When you find a spark of grace in the heart, kneel down and blow it into a flame. Speak a word in season to him that is weary, and encourage those who are fearful to go on their way with gladness. God encourages you by his promises; Christ encourages you as he points to the heaven he has won for you, and the spirit encourages you as he works in you to will and to do of his own will and pleasure. Imitate divine wisdom, and encourage others, according to the word of this evening.
