STOP AND THINK – Discouraged people don’t need critics. They hurt enough already. They don’t need more guilt or piled-on distress. They need encouragement. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)

There are a lot of discouraged people in the world, aren’t there? The last thing they need is someone telling them to buck up, get with it, or stop complaining. When you are discouraged, what helps you? It’s not someone with a superior attitude that only adds to your despair. What helps most are encouraging words.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. (1 Thessalonians 5:1)
