“Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad” Proverbs 12:25. “One day, a teacher asked her students, “Which is more important- the sun or the moon?” One eager student quickly replied, “The moon, Because the moon gives us light at night when it’s dark. The sun just gives us light in the day when we don’t really need it.” When you first read this story, it could make you wonder how often we take for granted those who make our lives easier. As you know the Moon is a reflection of the Sun. As Christians we should be a reflection of “The Son”-Jesus Christ. The Bible says no one should be taken for granted- that every person is important.
Proverbs 17:22 says “A merry heart does good like medicine:…” Is there someone you know that may be thinking they are a little underappreciated? Someone in your life who could use a word or hand of encouragement? Why not communicate your appreciation that person today? Or offer your assistance to them. You could be just the medication they need. I’ll guarantee you’ll make their day, and your words of gratitude, or hand of help, will be the needed “wind in their sail” to them keep doing the good work they are doing. Be a willing vessel used to encourage someone today. Everyone has value – tell someone today.
