We need encouragement to keep our minds focused on Christ and radiate His love in all we say and do.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Philippians 4:8 KJV
Having a verse for the day will help you through the hard times and enable you to encourage others. By using an encouragement vessel you will be able to focus your thoughts on Christ and start your day on a positive note.
Make an encouragement vessel.
- Fill a vessel or container with Bible verses. Need some verses to get started? Print these verses.
- Each day before your family goes out the door or gets started with their daily activities, gather around your encouragement vessel.
- Have each person choose a verse and read it. This is their verse for the day. They can carry the verse with them, read it, and draw upon God’s strengthening and encouraging power though out the day.
- When you are finished choosing verses, have a time of family prayer.
Use an encouragement vessel daily to help you stay focused on Christ, draw your family together, and encourage others.
