Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Wouldn't this description of Philemon be a great one to have said about you? I know I would love to have this reputation among God's family! To be loved and supported, encouraged by an encourager, is to have your heart refreshed and your attitude lifted. Let's commit to being an "encourager" who refreshes the hearts of those around us this week, especially those in the family of God.

My Prayer...

Tender and loving God, thank you for leading the people into my life who have encouraged me when I most needed it. Please give me the eyes to see and the heart to serve those around me who desperately need my encouragement. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
