During Pledge Drive this morning, I read some quotes from John C. Maxwell's book Encouragement Changes Everything. Here they are...
God’s love for us gives us the reason to encourage others. God’s love in us gives us the ability to encourage others. God’s love through us gives us the way to encourage others. -John C. Maxwell
There are three kinds of people in the world today. There are "well-poisoners," who discourage you and stomp on your creativity and tell you what you can't do. There are "lawn-mowers," people who are well-intentioned but self-absorbed; they tend to their own needs, mow their own lawns, and never leave their yards to help another person. Finally, there are "life-enhancers," people who reach out to enrich the lives of others, to lift them up and inspire them. We need to be life-enhancers, and we need to surround ourselves with life-enhancers. -Walt Disney
Thank you to our friend Jeannie for sending us the book with these quotes. It's a great little book, especially encouraging to us during this pledge drive.
