It is always encouraging to hear good news. The discipline of sharing the blessings and goodness of God in one’s life brings honor to the Lord and encourages others (I Corinthians 10:31). Often our conversation centers on the bad and difficult, and we ignore the good things of life. The Apostle Paul reminds us in Ephesians 4:29 that our words are to “edify” and build up others. A good exercise today would be to share with others about what God is doing in our life. We could share:
1. The blessings of God
2. Answers to prayer
3. Lessons God is teaching us
4. Special things that God has brought to our attention…and more.
It is in communicating personal blessings and truths that others are encouraged and God is honored.
