The value of an encouraging word! “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up” (Proverbs 12:25) I still remember the first time someone told me they thought I was smart. It had a big impact on me. After that I wanted to live up to that good word! The opposite of an encouraging word is - "crickets" or no word at all. You put yourself out there and no one responds. If you read this, could you respond to a good word you have received? And if nothing else at least hit the thumbs up button!
