Encourage- to inspire with courage, spirit, or confidence. To stimulate by assistance or approval.

One of the greatest gifts we have as Christians, is the ability and command to encourage each other.

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

-1 Thessalonians 5:8

We have a great hope and internal joy that stems from the knowledge of Christ living in us. With that knowledge, we have peace deep within and we are able to show others that peace and joy, by being the hands and feet of Christ, and encouraging those around us.

Whether its at work, at school, at home, in line at the coffee shop or grocery store, there is always an opportunity to show the love of Christ.

Today I thought I would share 15 ways to show kindness, and to encourage the hearts of those around you, to inspire them, and to show them they matter.

1. Leave an encouragement note, such as the ones from Mary and Martha’s Encouragement Note
Pack, in random places for others to find. Such as on nightstands, in lunch boxes, or on the steering
wheel. Or you could grab the Mary and Martha’s Daily Encouragement & Inspiration Cards and spread these around for others to see! You can also grab the amazing Mary and Martha’s Encouragement Box to be an encouragement to others around you!

3. Rake leaves for an elderly neighbor, return their garbage can to their house after pickup, ask if their dog needs to be walked.
4. Offer an additional word of thanks to the grocery store clerk, the waitress, or barista.
5. Use one of Mary and Martha’s Hello Hope Notecards, and send someone a handwritten note, telling them how thankful you are to know them, and to wish them a good day.
