Hebrews 10:11-25

Encourage One Another

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Suggestions: You may want to personalize the opening example of this lesson with something from your own life – being a mentor or having been mentored.

Today let’s talk about how to encourage one another. A little girl in my family calls me to talk about writing. She is eight years old and she wants to write books. She is off to a good start because she loves to read.

We talk about paying close attention to what is going on in the world. Notice morning dew on a spider web – one of the most beautiful sights. Notice how your best friend’s mouth curves up in a certain way when she smiles. Notice how the muscles in your brother’s arm curl when he throws a ball. Try to describe how a cat’s purr sounds or rain when it plunks and splatters on the sidewalk.

Reading a lot and paying attention are important to becoming a good writer. Each one of you has interests and talents that you could share with others. Can you imagine what our world would be like if we all helped each other be the best that we can be?

The Bible reminds us to think about how to encourage “one another to love and good works” (10:25).

You could be the person who makes a difference in someone’s life. Be eager to share your talents with others. Everyday think about something you could do or say that would encourage a friend, family member, or someone you meet when you are out and about in the world.

Don’t hesitate to tell someone the good things you like about them. A compliment (kind words) shows respect toward another person. Sometimes something you say will stay with a person their entire life to encourage them over and over again. Wouldn’t you like to be the person who gives that kind of encouragement?
