Our work is to be shared with others. To bless, encourage, and edify them in their own efforts
None of us is an island. We all stand on someone else’s shoulders.
For example: When we’re about to embark on a new venture we look for resources to guide us. That’s one of the supreme benefits of the internet. It’s why a multitude of conferences are held each year. And why coaches in every field are exploding in numbers and popularity.
Seriously, who wants to start from ground zero? No one!
So, we seek out those those who’ve already walked where we want to be and ask their advice.
We want to
- Learn from their experiences so we don’t repeat their mistakes
- Use the short-cuts they wished they knew about
- Know how they became proficient and efficient
- Employ the tools they used to find success
- Be encouraged by their words—and failures—because they help us overcome the same obstacles
We find these people in Scripture—our most vital resource. And in real life.
Who has God used to equip you to walk out your calling?
Who’s encouraged you to work with excellence?
Who’s helped you obtain your knowledge and skills?
Who’s given you the inspiration to keep going when you want to quit?
That, my friend, is what we’re also called to joyfully do for others! Whether as a mentor, discipler, teacher, guide, or friend.
So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.(1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that The Day of His return is drawing near.(Hebrews 10:24-25)
Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset.(Exodus 17:12) If you’ve never read Ex 17:8-16, DO! It beautifully depicts the importance of supporting and encouraging others—even on the spiritual level.
Jesus, please help make my work will bless and encourage others, providing a foundation for others to build on. Please honor my efforts and use them for Your glory.
