May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)
What are your “go to” sources for encouragement?
How well do you receive encouragement? What conditions or exceptions do you put on it?
Today’s Challenge: Choose encouragement well today. Refuse to settle for encouragement that affirms where you are. Look for encouragement that challenges you to grow. Encouragement often involves expectations.
