The Art of Lent – Day 16, Saturday

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work. And live peacefully with each other. Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.

1 Thessalonians 5:11-15 NLT

It is sacred work to encourage one another. Pray for God to show you opportunities each day to lift someone up.

The write down five “easy” compliments you can share with strangers.
