Teach and Encourage Others
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
Titus 2:1 – 8
Paul lived a life of service in which he poured continuously into the lives of those around him. Even whilst in prison, Paul wrote letters of encouragement to his churches and their leaders.
In the letter to Titus, Paul wrote to encourage and instruct Titus on how to effectively lead his church. The responsibility to teach and encourage others is not only the task of those in the office or with the title of Pastors, Leaders, Prophets or Teachers.
It is the responsibility of everyone in the Kingdom of God. On your way to the moon, there will be people who are at various stages of their journey. They might just be starting off, perhaps have lost their way, or are struggling in an area that you have already encountered and succeeded in.
Just as you sought mentors to advise and direct you on your journey, aim to be a mentor in someone else’s journey.
To you, your achievements might seem small and mistakes great but God can still use you to speak to His children. Yield to the leading of the Spirit in your life and ask Him to open your eyes to those around you who you can be a blessing to.
Today, choose to become a source of teaching, encouragement and inspiration to someone else.
Verse of the day
Proverbs 9:9; Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.’
