Thankful for the Reminder

Hi All! I wanted to post the verses from today's devotions. The lesson today dealt with encouraging our children and others. One of the things that stood out was that we need to let our kids know that their self-worth is not dependant upon how much praise they receive, but is based on the fact that they were created by God for a purpose. Everyone is worth something.
Our encouragement is meant to help them face the opportunities and challenges of life.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up - I Thes. 5:11

A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver - Prov. 25:11

If God is for us, who can be against us - Romans 8:31

An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.
- Prov. 12:25
