Today try this:
Write a letter of encouragement.
The Apostle Paul wrote letters to strengthen the followers of Christ, the church. He hoped to support the churches by offering them words of encouragement and hope.
Today I invite you to write a letter, not to the church, but to a family member or a friend. Like Paul’s letters, let your letter be an encouragement focusing on what you know to be true and good about God.
Mail or send your letter of encouragement and offer the following prayer:
We give you thanks for the ways your encourage us. Help us to encourage each other as we try our best to follow you. Amen.
School is starting soon. What would it be like during the first week of school for a student you know and love to receive a letter of encouragement from you?
