And to Give People Hope
After 30 years in Mayor and VitaMist®, I have had a chance to encourage hundreds if not thousands of people over the years. Some poorly some with great success, and I have discovered ten great ways to give people hope. You need all ten emotions in your “bag of hope” if you’re going to be effective. It’s not surprising to know that people are dying for someone to encourage them. I encourage you to make an effort to use all ten this week.
You need all ten emotions in our “bag of hope” if we’re going to be effective.
None of these ten means you will have fewer problems in your relationships. They don’t mean you won’t have to have hard conversations or set clear boundaries or keep forgiving those who hurt you.
Real encouragement seems to always happen right smack in the middle of life’s messes. Writer Peter Scuzzier is right in saying,
“Jesus modeled incarnating love when He took on flesh, entered our world, and walked in our shoes. His love compelled Him to cross two worlds, heaven and earth, and live among us. In order for us to love others as Jesus did, we too need to cross into other people’s worlds, enter life in their shoes, while holding on to our own world as well.”
