Words are powerful.
As leaders, the words we use make a difference. A huge difference.
I recently posted statements Jesus made that are life-giving.
As we seek to be like Him, we have an opportunity within our influence to be people-builders. Speak life-giving words.
For good and bad, my life has been greatly shaped by words shared with me.
I once had a pastor say, “Ron, you’re a giant killer!” He encouraged me to kill giants for the Kingdom of God. It changed the trajectory of my life.
Words are huge. Especially from someone we trust.
I’ll be honest. I’m not the best at it, but I try to pass on encouragement to younger leaders. And others as I see opportunity.
Everyone needs encouragement.
It takes an intentional effort. I try to make it a personal discipline.
Here are seven life-giving statements everyone needs to hear:
I’m praying for you!
You can do it!
I love you!
It’s going to be OK!
I believe in you!
I’m proud of you!
I’ve got your back!
So there you go. Words. Powerful words of encouragement.
Who could you add some life to today?
