Proverbs 17:22: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Meditation: Scripture teaches us that we are a whole person. Our spiritual life effects our physical life. Each and everyday we come across people that are hurting spiritually. Harold Vaughan once preached a message entitled, “The Ministry of Encouragement.” What a great ministry! We should all be encouragers. When you encourage someone it is like giving someone a dose of spiritual medicine for their soul. Each day we should ask ourselves, “Who can I encourage today?”
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for those that practice the ministry of encouragement. Help us all to be encouragers. Amen.
