We call this newsletter “The Encourager.” The truth is,it probably does more informing than encouraging. Still,everybody needs encouraging. Life can weigh us down. Itis very important that you attach yourself to hopeful peo-ple. That's one of the reasons why it's good to join a warm,friendly church.When it comes to encouragement, there are two types of people. There are VIPs – very inspiring people, and thereare VDPs – very draining people. VIPs lift you up; youneed a lot of them. VDPs wear you down. You ought tohave some just as a ministry, but you need more inspiringpeople around you. Positive people of faith are contagious.In Salem, Oregon, there was a church who decided toget serious about encouraging one another. They put“Encouragement Cards” in the hymnal racks on each pew.Each Sunday they asked the congregation to write a note of encouragement to someone. They took time in the servicejust for that. All the cards had to be signed. The cards werethen collected and mailed by the church office. You knowwhat they discovered? Those who gave encouragementfound encouragement by doing so. The lesson is clear: Byhelping others, we help ourselves. Jesus said it this way, “Itis more blessed to give than to receive.”I am convinced there are people you know who are“drying up on the vine” simply because no one has encour-aged them. Why not be an encourager this week?I’ll See You Sunday,
