So Many Need Encouraging

Adrian Rogers

One Peanuts comic strip stands out in my mind. Lucy says to Charlie Brown, “Charlie Brown, people put their deck chairs on the cruise ship in different ways. Some people put their deck chairs so they can see where they are going, and so they face it this way. Other people put their deck chairs so they can see where they have been, and they face it this way. Some people put their chairs this way so they can see where they are. How do you do it Charlie Brown?” He answered, “I can’t get mine unfolded.”

There are a lot of Charlie Browns in this world, and they need to be encouraged. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

How can you be an encourager? By practicing stewardship. Just make a promise that when you see a need you are going to move in and meet that need. I know there is a neighbor next to you that needs some help. I know there is a person in your school that needs some help. I know there is a friend that needs some help. In the name of Jesus, why don’t you move alongside that person and say, “Such as I have, give I unto thee” (see Acts 3:6).
