An Encouraging Word!

ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S STUFF

Your encouragement can have great power. One reason why is because everybody needs to be encouraged. The night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre, he was carrying:
-Two pairs of glasses.
-A small velvet eyeglass cleaner.
-An ivory pocketknife.
-A large handkerchief with “A. Lincoln” stitched in red.
-A tiny pencil.
-A brass sleeve button.
-A fancy watch fob.
-And a brown wallet with a Confederate five-dollar bill.

But Lincoln also carried 8 newspaper clippings that he had cut out and saved. All of those clippings praised him. Everybody needs encouragement.

Even Abraham Lincoln needed encouragement. I am sure you will come in contact with someone today who just needs a good word.  It is so easy to criticize and tear down the world around us. Words of encouragement are so many times at a premium.  Look for that person who needs a kind comment or pat on the back.  Be an encourager and lift their spirit.  In doing so, you will also encourage yourself. 

Proverbs  17:22   A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
