“12 And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience.13 Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 (The Message)
Just a reminder that we need to say, “Thank you!” to those who have poured into our lives. There are so many who have given of themselves to help each of us be where we are today. I have countless people to be grateful for and to that have impacted my life. So do you. Take time today to contact one of them and let them know you appreciate them and what they have done for you. Encourage them and bless them today. It is just a small token for what they have done for you.
And for those around you now who are serving, show them honor and gratitude continually. This is a much more powerful motivator than any other including guilt. May we never forget to appreciate those who are due honor and respect. May we show it with our actions and our words.
