Scripture Memory Team: Our June Verse.

Forgive me!  I didn't post this yesterday. 

This is my verse for the next two weeks:

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
                                                                                             1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV

We need to encourage one another not just through the big things, but the little ones too.
Why not send a note to someone on the prayer list letting them know you're thinking about them?  Visit someone in the nursing home who would love some company (or a manicure!). 
Pick some flowers from your back yard and take them to the overwhelmed young mom next door.
Tell your child's Sunday School teacher thanks for taking the time to serve our kids.
Take a cold glass of tea to your husband while he's working outside.
Call your mom - just because. 

Honestly, the list could be endless.  The point is, not just to memorize our verses, but to let God's word permeate our lives and change us. 

Speaking of encouraging, have I told you lately I think you girls are great?  I really do!

And don't worry if you haven't been memorizing verses each time.  Start slow.  Start now.  Try just one a month - heck, even one a year!  Share below what verse you're working on.
