Encouragement, Driver of Good Performance

We all need an encourager and encouragement at one time or another. And the early church was no exception. Barnabas was a real person of the first century A.D.. He was called Barnabas the encourager. He lifted people up, gave them COURAGE and HOPE by his generosity and kindness. Barnabas practiced his Christianity. We learn about Barnabas (Encourager) from the Bible, e.g. (Acts 4:36,37).

People working in social projects like Persatuan Berdikari Seremban need to be encouraged too. Staffs are paid below secular rates and volunteers help at their own expenses. Encouraging them will spur them to continue their good work. Money alone cannot buy all we need in this life. Being recognized as people who contribute to the betterment of the disadvantaged members in our society builds us and nurtures our souls.

Be an encourager, like Barnabas, and find yourself encouraged too.
