“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” -- 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Encouragement means ...

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom.” -- Colossians 3:16

“And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” -- 1 Thessalonians 5:14

“Admonishing is a ministry calling for much warmth and closeness. There is no hint of a distant judgmentalism or of criticism launched from some height of supposed superiority. Paul's admonitions were stimulated by a deep love for young believers. His love was so deep that his admonitions were often accompanied by tears.” -- Larry Richards
