I couldn’t get the phrase “build each other up” out of my head. So I just let myself start to write. I read 1 Thessalonians 5:11 a few times and kept writing. There is a lot of noise and a lot of silence in the world. A lot of criticism and cynicism and jump to conclusionisms… but there isn’t a lot of encouragement. A lot of positive words and positive voices. Be the positive voice. Be the smile. Be the one who notices. Encourage someone before you go to bed. Encourage someone first thing tomorrow morning. Be someone’s reason to keep trying.
