Encouraging others means helping people, looking for the best in them, and trying to bring out their positive qualities.

From Romans 15:2-3:  “Each of us must please our neighbor for the good purpose of building up the neighbor.  For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, ‘The insults of those who insult you have fallen on Me.'”

The mark of a Christian is that he will walk the second mile and turn the other cheek.  A wise man or woman gives the extra effort, all for the glory of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

From Philippians 2:4:  “Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage.  Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.”
