But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception. Hebrews 3:13

The 118th Psalm reminds us, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (v. 24). As we rejoice in this day that the Lord has given us, let us remember that an important part of today’s celebration is the time we spend celebrating others. Each day provides countless opportunities to encourage others and to praise their good works. When we do, we not only spread seeds of joy and happiness, we also follow the commandments of God’s Holy Word.

How can we build others up? By celebrating their victories and their accomplishments. So look for the good in others and celebrate the good that you find. When you do, you’ll be a powerful force of encourage-ment in the world…and a worthy servant to your God.

Have a blessed week, Pastor John
