Encourage One Another
Striving and encouraging.
I don’t watch a lot of TV but the show American Ninja Warriors caught my attention. The men and women who compete on the show work their tails off practicing for the competition. I enjoy the back stories where they share their struggles and challenges offering insight as to why they are even attempting this brutal challenge. They are striving to improve their lives which include restoration and their fellow competitors are among their strongest encouragers!
What a concept! Instead of trying to trash talk the competition, these folks are united in their encouragement for one another. It motivates me to work harder on my issues and be more of an encourager to others. How are you doing in the striving and encouraging departments? Check your experience…
“We claim spiritual progress rather than spiritual perfection.” Big Book pg 60
Lord, let us grow closer to You through striving to improve ourselves and encouraging others, AMEN.
“Finally, brothers and sisters rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.” 2 Corinthians 13:11
Have a blessed day y’all!
