who are you cheering for?

But encourage one another daily...
as long is it is called Today.
Hebrews 3:13

We have no problem picking out our favorite team...or our favorite player...and cheering them on in their game. In many cases..we cheer for people we don't even know. We are not always quite as enthusiastic about offering our encouragement to those we are 'doing life' with. We need others to come alongside of us...and they need to hear us cheering for them. So throw your support behind the team of your choice for the Super Bowl...but don't forget to cheer for those who need a little encouragement in the game of life.

  2. I'm sure the superbowl will be on in this house this afternoon. I've promised chili and garlic bread!
    Encouragement - we never know how powerful an encouraging word or smile will be. If we did, we'd be giving them out constantly.

  5. Wise counsel. It's so much easier to support from afar...the ones with whom I could sit down to tea...well, they're a tougher lot. Thanks for giving me something to ponder yet again.

  6. I often wonder that we have it soo backwards.. cheering for people we've never met .. and ignore the ones in our life to whom a little cheering would make such a difference !!
    A great reminder !!

  7. Very true,and good advice, Judy! It is easy to take those around us for granted, and then sadly regret it later.

  8. You are so right Judy....words of encouragement....we should give them more freely ...I'll try to this week. This is a trying week for me so lets see if I can give more than I receive!
