How To Encourage Those Around You

Anyone who knows me know that I am an encourager. I purposefully encourage those I come into contact with on a daily basis. Reason being, is that I have learned the importance of a kind word, a good deed,or a warm smile that can brighten if not change a person's life. When we encounter people, we don't know what they are dealing with. Usually what we have to go by is their facial expression or their body language. Very rare do we encounter people who are willing to come out and say exactly what is going on in their lives. Therefore, we need to always be alert and on guard to readily and attentively give an encouraging word where one is needed.
Just as we like to and need to be encouraged, others have the same need as well. I came across a passage in a book I am currently reading about how encouragement changes everything that I would like to share with you. BE BLESSED!
