“But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”  (Hebrews 3.13; ESV)

I am not the great encourager, but I try to pick up folks when they are down. It is easy to encourage someone, give them them a little of your time. A quick five minute pause in your day will not harm your schedule. In fact, taking five minutes to encourage someone else might make your day a little better.

Quick Five Minute Thoughts:

  • Send three people a quick email to let them know you are praying for them.
  • Leave a note on someone’s Facebook page.
  • Send someone an encouraging card.
  • Make someone a quick card and let them know you are thinking about them.
  • Call someone and see how they are doing.
  • Pick some flowers and give to someone you do not know.
  • Pray for someone.

Will you take five minutes to encourage someone today?

Just some thoughts,
