As I was going about my day, a thought came to mind about the need for accountability to encourage one another.
It is a sad situation when a friend or loved one is separated from you by a sudden death or is sentenced to jail or prison for a lengthy time. It is also a sad situation if you knew they were doing something that could lead them to their demise and you allowed them to continue going down the wrong path. Our time here on earth is getting shorter. This year, let us all encourage one another to do the right thing. Encourage one another to do something positive. Especially in the black community, people tend to stereotype us and the question is – do we prove them wrong? Unfortunately, most of the time we do not. However, we can! We must grab hold to the mindset of desiring a different and better life. We must let go of the fleshy desires that only lead to destruction in our lives. Yes, we can do better and we can prove the critics wrong.
Let us make a commitment to encourage one another to seek productive and positive things that will please God. May God bless you to be an encouragement to someone today.
“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Heb 10:24-25).
