Advent Act of Kindness

Encourage One Another

This Advent Act of Kindness seems simple enough. Of course we are going to
encourage one another. Don’t we do that all the time? I say no. In fact, I think we are sometimes found discouraging others. It’s especially so on social Media.  Perhaps today could be our opportunity to be attentive to those around us and to offer them a word of encouragement

Bible Reading
1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 – Common English Bible (CEB)

Brothers and sisters, we ask you to respect those who are working with you,
leading you, and instructing you. Think of them highly with love because of
their work. Live in peace with each other. Brothers and sisters, we urge you to
warn those who are disorderly. Comfort the discouraged. Help the weak. Be
patient with everyone. Make sure no one repays a wrong with a wrong, but
always pursue the good for each other and everyone else. Rejoice always.
Pray continually. Give thanks in every situation because this is God’s will for
you in Christ Jesus.
