Building others up (which I find very hard) is really important. When you encourage people you’re building them up and blessing them at the same time.
Sometimes it can be difficult to say encouraging things, as it way easier to say unkind words, but when you do that it’s like knocking down the invisible wall you and other people made in the past.
But even though it can be hard encouraging people even when you don’t feel like it, it is always the thing God wants you to do! 🙂
