We’ve been talking a lot recently about encouragement. Partly because it’s a weakness of mine I’m trying to improve on, and partly because the Bible commands it and exemplifies it. We’ve discussed the need for encouragement to be daily, strategic, and specific. But don’t get the wrong idea about encouragement. It’s not just about the one being encouraged; it’s also about the encourager.

One thing you’ll find about ongoing encouragement is how it changes you. A daily commitment to see the best in others and point it out will change your viewpoint, improve your overall attitude and outlook at life, and improve the relationships around you. After all, everyone wants to be around an encourager!

In light of the universal benefits of encouragement, today I’m issuing a 7-Day Encouragement Challenge.

I challenge you to put into action what we’ve been discussing about encouragement for 7 days straight. Use Post-It notes, your phone’s reminder app, an alarm clock, or whatever you have to use to remember, and make sure you encourage someone daily, strategically, and specifically.

It can be a family member, friend, co-worker, boss, or the barista at your favorite coffee shop. Whoever it is, they’ll benefit from your encouragement and so will you!

If you’re in for the challenge, let me know how it goes!

Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tell me about it. I’d love to hear what you’ve learned and what happens as you engage people daily.
