Encourage one another
"Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another..." Hebrews 10:24-25 (GNT)
There are times when we need to be alone to reflect and contemplate and do those things that we need to do on our own, as Jesus did many times. But there are so many occasions in the Bible when we see that he was in the company of disciples, occasions when they supported each other. We know that there were some occasions that were very difficult for them. There were times of struggle and upset and there were always times of support and laughter. Times when they held each other up.
Let us be ready and willing to hold each other up when we fall. And when others fall let us be there ready and able to support them. Let there be hands ready to stir us up to love and doing what we know to be good. Let us be concerned enough for one another that we listen with care and understanding to each other concerns. Let us help and encourage one another. Let us hold each other up. Let us encourage one another.
