When we listen to someone’s difficult situation, we may also feel burdened. It’s difficult to encourage others with our own power. When the Holy Spirit is with us, we can encourage others. We shouldn’t have a mindset of indifference even if we cannot provide any help or solution.

Have the heart of listening and understanding and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Wise words of encouragement can give comfort and strengthen others.

The following verses exhort us to encourage one another and convey God’s encouragement. Be comforted by meditating on the messages contained and give encouragement to others.
