Serene Sunday - you can find serenity by knowing when to encourage.Throughout the month of October, Serene Sundays have been devoted to encouragement. The articles have dealt with why you should encourage, who to encourage and how to encourage. This, the last of the Serene Sunday encouragement series, will deal with when to encourage.
It is important to provide encouragement at the start of an adventure. The encouragement you provide someone at the start of something may provide them with the fuel they need to get to the next leg of the race. Encouragement is also needed in the middle of an adventure. Sometimes in the middle of an adventure people get tired and think about quitting. The encouragement you provide at this point, may help them make it to the end. At the end of the adventure, encouragement is needed to help the person enjoy reaching the finish line and have the stamina to prepare for what is ahead. Encourage all day, everyday.
Encouragement is not fattening, so do it early and often. So, the question for you this Serene Sunday is when do you think encouragement should be given?
