Help each other through tough times
As you start to finish up your routine of the day, do you get discouraged when you think about how tired you are or what you need to do when you get home? With the busy schedules we have today, it’s easy to get discouraged. This is when our friends, co-workers and family can help us with their encouraging words. They can help us through the difficult time. In I Thessalonians 5: 11-23, Paul gives many specific examples how we can encourage others.
