|on being an encouragement|

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, 
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
Proverbs 3:27 

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not,
to him it is sin.
James 4:17  

today I have a hopefully fairly simple thought....

->> How often do we skip a chance to encourage someone?

big bang in such a little tiny question!

I mean, really think about it! How often do we see someone hurting and keep walking by? How often do we notice someones discouragement and look away? How often do we hear a screaming heart and stop our ears?

too often... waaaayyyy too often! =(

This hit my heart hard- REALLY hard! and Im ashamed of the answers that fled through my head! 

a lot of times we use excuses- we're too busy, too stressed, too tired, etc. We dont have an excuse though, because we know what is the right thing to do, yet we dont do it.

Take 5 minutes and write a note, make a phone call, stop to say Hi, type an email, make a little package of sunshine! 

Just take 5 minutes!!! If the Lord prompts you, do it- if you dont, you will be held accountable!!
