It is always easier to tear down than to build up.
I watch my little boy playing with his Lego.
“And then this goes on top of here,” he explains, “and this one, and this one.”
He carefully selects each brick: red on top of blue, two to match the other side, a bridge over the pillars – no, not a bridge- he’s changed his mind – a bright tower. Here a door, there a window; he creates his world with such care, and I pour over my Mummy superlatives: “excellent – that’s beautiful, darling.”
James Prescott is one of the most encouraging people on the Twittersphere, and has recently released an e-book on encouragement. I’m honoured to be over at his place today, blogging a meditation on Ephesians 4:29, on the importance of encouragement.
Won’t you come on over with me and be encouraged?
