Keep on encouraging one another.—Heb. 3:13.

Jehovah and Jesus greatly value what all of us do to support Kingdom interests, even if our efforts and contributions are limited because of our circumstances. (Luke 21:1-4; 2 Cor. 8:12) For instance, some of our dear elderly ones make great effort to attend and share in meetings and the ministry regularly. Should we not commend and encourage them? Yes, seize opportunities to encourage others. If we see something that merits commendation, why hold back? Consider what happened when Paul and Barnabas were at Antioch in Pisidia. The presiding officers of the synagogue there told them: “Men, brothers, if you have any word of encouragement for the people, tell it.” Paul responded by giving a fine talk. (Acts 13:13-16, 42-44) If we can offer a word of encouragement, why not speak up? We will very likely find that if we make it a habit to be encouraging, people will encourage us in return.—Luke 6:38. w16.11 1:3, 15, 16

It is so nice to be noticed abd appreciated.  We can tend to feel we blend into the crowd and nothing we do amounts to anything.  Our self esteem suffers.  I’m going to try and make it a habit to give praise, encouragement, or a kind word everyday to at least three people I come in contact with.  Since the majority of people I see are at the hospital, who needs more encouragement than these? I will also include ones that are extremely difficult to get along with.  I think I will pull out a neglected journal and start tracking my progress and how my feelings change.  Good reminder. 

Ill start now.  Thank you Vernalee for your tireless effort in your contribution to this site. And to Astrid for always posting the WT weekly.  And really to all my brothers and sisters who contribute and support us all her with their prayers, research, support and watchful eye over keeping this site a safe place to land. Thank you and much love to you all.
