Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another.  Hebrews 10: 24-25

I have met several people who have chosen as their corporate title, Chief Encouragement Officer.  I have loved that title and believe if every company had this position, there would be a lot less angst in the working class.  How much easier it is to face a boring job when I felt that those around me were encouragers rather than people who put me down or treated me with disdain.  Every one faces life as an uphill battle.  It is so important to be surrounded by those who spur us on.  It can be as simple as a smile to become an encourager.  Acknowledging the best efforts that are being made even when I know I could do it better goes a long way to getting a better result.

The book “Multipliers” introduces the concept of those who are achieving amazing results because they are committed to finding talent and recognizing it.  Men and women of industry are breaking new ground because they spur on the people who work with them, encouraging them to try new ideas and break through long established barriers by being encouragers.  The best in their fields go to work with them because of the atmosphere these encouragers have created.  Life can be boiled down to its very essence when people are given a task they love and are allowed to pursue it with a cheering section alongside.

God asks that we perform all that He gives us to do with love.  I believe if these good deeds are encouraged and recognized, human nature will rise up to be the best it can be.  God loves when His own are encouragers.

Lord help me to seek out the best efforts in people and recognize it so they feel encouraged and valued. Help me to be a person who loves with all my heart and all my soul.  Help me to spur on those who are needing a boost to their lagging spirit.  I want to be an encourager!
