Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another ....
Encourage - to strengthen another
Edify - to promote wisdom and piety in another.
Remember the old song - Home on the Range and the line that says
...Where never is heard a discouraging word...
We need to get back to that. How many encouraging words do you know?
I will not ask how many disparaging words, for we are full of those from the TV and radio, work place, school, and our own corrupted minds.
And by encouraging words, I mean to go beyond the surface of physical characteristics. Its nice to say someone has a nice smile, or looks good today, but what else can we say to encourage others?
I think the first step is to care. Acknowledge others an what they are doing.
Point out what is right! Not wrong.
The mission for today - seek words that would encourage others.
Listen to those around you and pay attention to those who encourage and what they say.
It's a hard world. We need encouragers.
