Endurance and Encouragement

Posted on September 30, 2018

We like to endure with sports not with people.  Enduring a relationship feels like a lot of work. Even so, Jesus doesn't back off, instead He calls us to connect for the long haul. Today we discover how to endure the tension we have with others. The nice thing is that we don't have to fix our friends instead we're instructed to build them up.  When I build others up I find joy in helping, I find joy in blessing them. And sometimes we even begin to see a difference in their life. One of the reasons why I think Jesus says to focus on building each other up, because when you build up it’s harder to give up.
