"Not everyone can be a great preacher or Bible class teacher. But everyone can be an encourager - and that includes you. It doesn't matter it you are young or old, a woman or a man, rich or poor. God has already given you everything you need to be an encourager - all you have to do is put to use those abilities you already have.

You probably know about the biblical character Barnabas, The Son of Encouragement (Acts 4:36-37). But did you know that his given name was Joses? Barnabas was a name the apostles gave him because of the great encouragement he provided to others.

You too can become a Barnabas. All you have to do is practice being an encourager. You will be absolutely astounded at what it will do for other people and most of all for you."
