I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints. (v 4-7)

Have I said, "Thank you!" to God for sending people into my life who are an encouragement to me?
Do I tell others that they are an encouragement to me?
Am I living my life so that someone would say such to me?

Words...they are powerful.

I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
