Clint Hurdle began sending daily notes of inspiration to a dozen colleagues in 2009 when he was managing the Colorado Rockies. He would offer support, discuss leadership ideas, and simply check in with them. His list now numbers more than five thousand people.
The Bible consistently calls us to “encourage one another and build one another up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11). We are to “let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear” (Ephesians 4:29).
Why is encouragement so important? Because it is so needed.
