'Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. '

1 Thessalonians 5:11-19

1.) How can we grow from going out of our way to encourage others?

2.) How can we be more observant in knowing when someone seems like they’re going through a tough time?

3.) How can we seem approachable when someone needs to talk about what’s going on in their life?
