I pass a lot of different people on my runs. Some are new to it, some have been running for years, some are high school athletes, and some are anywhere in between. No matter where they’re at, one thing everyone can benefit from is encouragement. A simple, “Hi!” or, “You’re doing great!” as you pass by can go further than you think. Have you ever experienced that? If not, let me tell you, it can give you energy and take your mindset straight into a positive mode. And how much effort does it take to give the encouragement? Almost none. We are all in different seasons and stages of life, not knowing all the details of what others are going through, but what could God do if we all said something encouraging to those we pass by or those He brings to our minds? Could He use those small words to do something amazing? You bet! Try it out and see 😊 I bet God will also do something in your life through it as well.
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
-1 Thessalonians 5:11
