A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after a success. (Source Unknown)
Do you remember what it was like to be part of a winning team or to achieve something special? The compliments and awards were really great, weren’t they? But the words of praise are soon forgotten, and the awards are soon collecting dust. So, remember those words of encouragement that contributed to your success and share them with others whenever you can!
Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. (Ephesians 4:29)
