Read it! Acts 13
After the reading from the Law and the Prophets,
the synagogue rulers sent word to them, saying,
“Brothers, if you have a message of encouragement for the people, please speak.”
Think it through
I like to think of myself as an encourager. Whenever I take a “Spiritual Gift Test,” the gift of encouragement pops up as my secondary gift (the gift of teaching always comes in first!). I’m great at complimenting cute outfits and verbally admiring personal traits… but sometimes I find myself feeling too shy to give the real encouragement that Paul and Barnabus shared so boldly.
