We have many ideas about what encouragement is. My pastor, John Barnett, talked on this a few weeks ago.
For one person, it might be a spoken word of appreciation.
For another, it might be quality time together hanging out and talking.
Maybe it looks like washing the dishes or doing the laundry for your parent, spouse, or roommate.
All these things are encouraging; and they have one thing in common. To do these encouraging acts, you have to show up. This was my pastor’s premise.
The basic act of encouragement is simply showing up in someone’s life! So, you don’t have to be over the top, above perfection, completely organized encouragement. Just show up.
