Many can be a Paul because they went before you and shared the wisdom of their ways. Many want to be a Timothy and ask you to mentor them and guide them. Few are willing to be a Barnabas. A kind word at the time of doubt. A gentle reminder at the crossroads of humility. A loving nudge when you contemplate fatigue.
This last week in Dubai and Zimbabwe I learned the lessons of encouragement from my friend Victor Abraham. Whether in corporate settings, a church above, or the training we conducted, he taught me a lot. This week become an encouragement to someone by loving them, nudging them and praying for them. Even the motivators needs motivation. It's a way of the world.
