So, Write A Card
“I can’t do much.” So, write a card.
“I’m not very good at being encouraging.” So, write a card.
“I never know what to say.” So, write a card.
“I’m not able to go visit.” So, write a card.
“I don’t have a lot of free time.” So, write a card.
“I have to work late every day this week.” So, write a card.
I’m not saying that writing a card cures every ailment. But it is a little thing that can have a huge impact.
“I sometimes feel like I can’t do much. There’s a sibling in the Faith and they aren’t attending very well, or seem so discouraged and I can’t seem to do much to help them.” So, write a card. It isn’t much, but it’s something.
“I struggle being a consistent Barnabas (“Son of Encouragement).” Your efforts of encouragement aren’t about you; it is about them. So, write a card.
There are times when words are stupid things. It isn’t always about what you say; sometimes it’s about saying. So, write a card. “I love you,” “I’m praying for you,” or “I’m here” can be more impactful than you realize. So, write a card.
Maybe you are limited by transportation issues. Postage services aren’t limited; that is their job. So, write a card. Let them deliver it. Schedules are demanding. There are always limitations on time; between work and parenting, there is not much left over. Maybe you should reevaluate how you spend your time. Sit down and spend 10 minutes. So, write a card.
Maybe the question you are asking is, “Who should I write to?” The sick, the discouraged, our leadership, or just a random member you want to encourage. So? Write a card.
