In His Praise — February 25, 2024

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” 

Hebrews 10:24

 “I am not my brothers keeper!” We have all heard these words before and may have even spoken them. While it is true that we are not responsible for another’s actions, the Bible says that as part of a Christ’s body, we are to encourage (spur)  each other toward good deeds.  

Cowboys are known to  wear spurs on their boots to help get their horses to move faster or to go in the desired direction. It is a gentle nudge. We can give these gentle nudges to others when we lend a listening ear,  offer a helping hand, or express sincere gratitude. It might also simply be a warm smile, a hug, a friendly handshake or a pat on the back that causes another to feel loved and encouraged. 

We do not always know the results of our interactions with others; and we are not responsible for their actions. But we are always to consider ways to show God’s love and encouragement them. As God’s light it is our duty to help others shine too!
