“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin” Hebrews 3:13. Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing” 1 Thessalonians 5:11. It is easy to take these scriptures with the best of intentions and hurt others with our words.
Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of learning to encourage others without wounding them. Christians have somehow gotten the reputation of being hypocrites who judge others. Christians are not intentionally hurting others, so why has this become what people see. Maybe it’s because in our effort to encourage we are being condemning. It’s time we change how we encourage others and get a new perspective on encouragement.
