Your love has given me great joy and encouragement,
because you, brother,
have refreshed the hearts of the saints.
Wouldn’t this description of Philemon
be a great one to have said about you!
To be loved,
and encouraged by an encourager
is to have your heart refreshed
and your attitude lifted.
Let’s make a commitment to be an “encourager”
who refreshes the hearts of those around us this week.
Tender and loving God,
thank you for leading the people into my
life who have encouraged me when I most needed it.
Please give me
the eyes to see and the heart to serve
those around me who desperately need my encouragement.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
