Encourage a Youth
Today's giving was the kind that leaves you grateful for the moments when the Lord can use you as an instrument.
The experiences were sacred.
Moments that are better left unspoken.
My heart was taught today. Important lessons.
That people come before programs. That sometimes late is better than on time. That perfection is not required for the Spirit to manifest itself. That sometimes the most important words are the ones that are filled with encouragement.
I was reminded of a quote from Martin Luther...
The kingdom of God is like a besieged city surrounded on all sides by death. Each man has his place on the wall to defend and no one can stand where another stands, but nothing prevents us from calling encouragement to one another.
It might make all the difference...
