Each Moment is a Chance for Encouragement

Correspondingly everyone needs encouragement! Additionally an author of long ago wrote:

“Every day that passes brings us nearer the last great important day. We are one year nearer the judgment, nearer eternity, than we were at the beginning of 1884. Are we also drawing nearer to God? Are we watching unto prayer? Another year of our time to labor has rolled into eternity. Every day we have been associating with men and women who are judgment bound. Each day may have been the dividing line to some soul; someone may have made the decision which shall determine his future destiny. What has been our influence over these fellow travelers? What efforts have we put forth to bring them to Christ?” {5T 466.1}

Hence will your passing: comments, actions, or lack thereof invite people to look up with encouragement from the encounter to God?

Do you spread negativity, neutrality, or encouragement?  Certainly there is no other options.

Father, make a change in everyone reading these words. Hear the regret and repentance of each heart crying-out for where we all have fallen short. Open our eyes to see moments as opportunities. Change our focus from hurry, rush, and get; into seeking Your kingdom above all else. Help us choose to use our words and actions to encourage others to seek You as well.

In Jesus name amen
