This morning I was reading an online newsletter. The main story was about building self-esteem. The writer suggested that you write down 10 positive things about yourself. You may only be able to come up with two. Ask several close friends to also write down 10 of your strengths and give it to you. Start a file and save the list given to you by friends. When you receive words of encouragement from anyone, add them to the file. Periodically review your file.
While I don’t mind the idea of asking others to write down 10 things about me, I thought wouldn’t it be great if I wrote down 10 positive things (or as many as I could think of) about my friends and send it to them. Wouldn’t that be encouraging?
If you need encouragement, become an encourager. God’s universal law of sowing and reaping applies. If you have a need for something, begin to sow that into the lives of others.
So readers, I challenge you, this week, to be an encourager to someone who has made a difference in your life.
