“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” -C. S. Lewis
Today, as I inhale, I realize how much being supportive of others can lift their spirits. As a teacher, I can name countless lessons that my students teach me. However, today, I can just simply say… My students learn more from the supportive encouragement from their peers than from me. Yes, it is true that I provide lessons and learning, but when they are looking for that cheer section…it gives them courage.
Elizabeth encouraged Mary. Bartimaeus encouraged the masses…with the reality that Jesus heals. Barnabas’ story is comforting to many. It is Christlike to encourage, even at the expense of your own feelings.
Today, I celebrate with many. I lift high the celebration of everyone who is being blessed today. The Lord is in my hallway and I am rejoicing NOW!
