Throughout the Bible we see instructions to encourage one another and verses that are meant to encourage us. Why? Primarily because encouragement is necessary to our walk of faith.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. —1Thessalonians 5:11
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. —Hebrews 3:13
