Abraham Lincoln tops the polls as the most popular US President of all time. His troubled presidency came at the culmination of a lifelong struggle with depression, a nervous breakdown, and neighbours who were known to set suicide watches over him in his youth.



So, how did he do it?  The night he was assassinated, Lincoln’s pockets were stuffed with newspaper clippings that praised him, his leadership, and the positive impact he was having.


We all need encouragement. The author of Hebrews says in  Hebrews 10:23-25,’’ Let  us hold   fast   the profession  of our faith without wavering for he is faithful  that promised;) Consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another-and all the more, as you see the Day approaching’’.



Ephesians 4:29 says, ‘’Do  not let  any unwholesome talk come  out of your mouths, but  only what is  helpful  for building others up according  to their needs, that  it may  benefit  those who listen .’’


Imagine what could happen if we were able to live up to that in our homes, churches, and communities.


Don’t go it alone. Hebrews 10:25 warns us not to give up meeting together. Jesus didn’t go it alone. He gathered a group of people to share life and ministry with, and he asked  His closest friends to watch and pray with Him when he needed it most. If Jesus sought out that kind of support, we should as well!


Let’s be intentional about encouraging one another as we walk this journey together, so, no one has to go it alone.
