Encouraging One Another

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. (Proverbs 17:17)
We know it is important to show up for the people you love. While that is important and necessary if you want to love others well, there is more to building strong relationships than just being present for people. Let’s look at a few ways you can show love and encouragement to those closest to you.

1. Use Words
Love is showing someone you love them, but also you need to speak words of love. You not only need to say the right words, but you should say them in the right way. When Jesus used words, He used words that were very powerful. He spoke words of encouragement, direction and affirmation. God wants us to live just like that.

2. Pray for Them
We need to make it a habit of praying for those we love. If you love someone, you most likely have a good idea of what is happening in their lives – what they are waiting for, what they are struggling with, and what they are hoping to see. This gives you a unique opportunity to pray for them specifically. If you want to love someone well, pray for them consistently and intercede on their behalf.

3. Keep Your Word
Your word is very important. When you keep your promise, it says you are reliable and dependable. You will be there, when you say you will be there. Parents, your kids need that. Grandparents, your grandchildren need that. Students, your friends need that. Trust is something that is earned, never demanded. Love means keeping your promises. If you want to love like Jesus, make your word be your bond.
