There is a huge difference between being an encourager and being an enabler. An enabler will leave you where you are, fixing things for you, and rarely challenging you. Enablers leave you in a place of being condemned. An encourager will always point you to where you need to be. Encouragers are always challenging you, but never condemning you
Hebrews 10:23-25 teaches us to be encouragers: “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
To encourage is defined as: “To inspire with courage, spirit, or confidence: to stimulate, to advance, to spur on.” In other words, to infuse courage in one another. Let us be encouragers and not enablers. ENCOURAGE SOMEONE TODAY!
