Every person you meet today is hurting deep inside from something. Go gentle into this good day. (Leonard Sweet, American theologian)

You just can’t tell what is going on in someone’s life just by seeing them briefly. They may give the appearance of health and happiness, but a few minutes’ conversation might very well reveal some deep-seated health, family, or emotional needs. Sweet’s advice is a challenge to be sensitive to others with the intention to encourage and lift them up.

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
