For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you. Philemon 1:7
“…the heart of the saints have been refreshed through you.” Wouldn’t you love to have those words of encouragement said to you?
Are you a refreshing spirit?
Do you look for the best in others?
Do you keep unkind words to yourself?
Do you stop harsh words before they spew from your mouth?
Do you purposely find and share encouraging words with others?
Do you show honor to friends?
Do you express respect for people in authority?
Do you stop gossip before it can get started?
Do you honor God with your mouth?
Do you refresh the hearts of people around you?
I have work to do. How about you?
