Prayer: Lord, help us to be an encouragement to all we come in contact with especially to our students.
Scripture – “Anxiety in a man’s heart weights it down, but a good word makes him glad. Proverbs 12:25 NASB
It is important to remember that you may be the ONLY person to give a student (or anyone else) words of encouragement. Encouragement is not usually the first thing that comes to mind when a student is sitting in front of the office or fails a test (again), but it can make a lifetime of difference. Lack of encouragement, or worse, discouragement can destroy anyone’s self-esteem. How can each of us carry out the attribute of being encouraging in our daily environment (classroom, hallways, meetings, cafeteria, office, etc.)?
