PURPOSEFUL RELATIONSHIPS | Day 1 | Purposeful Relationships Are Encouraging

1 Thessalonians 5:11 – Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

“Encouragement is like peanut butter on bread. If you spread it around, it just helps things stick together better.”

Many relationships are in need of what every football team has: cheerleaders. The job of a cheerleader is to tell everybody “We’re going to make it.” No matter how bad things look on the scoreboard, there is still hope. Cheerleaders cheer all the way to the end of the game and will act like the team is winning by a big score even when there may be no way that a victory is possible. Their job is to be a cheerleader.

Relationships need cheerleaders, folks who are willing to cheer each other on and tell each other that they are going to make it.”
