Scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go . . . You will find more happiness than you have ever known. (Amy R Raabe)

Raabe continues: “Scatter bits of courtesy, watch them grow and grow. Gather buds of friendship; keep them till full-blown.” In a world of confusion and depression, this is good advice. Our own unhappiness or disappointment will not be an encouragement to anyone else, but if we scatter the right kinds of seeds, we will be able to give a boost to many.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up . . . encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone (1 Thessalonians 5:11; 14).
