Encourage One Another and Build One Another Up

On my Food for the Poor Calendar, it has scripture from the Bible. When I read this at the beginning of the month, I was amazed at how timely it was to my life.

Therefore, encourage one another and build one another as, as indeed you do.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

It seems to be quite fitting in this give me, give me, its all about me age. Not only is it applicable in my real life, it is applicable in my blogging life as well.

So many people, it is all about them and tearing people down instead of building them up. When we help to build others up and do unselfish acts, it in turn helps to bring us UP as well.

For example, when I link to other blogs. It gives them traffic as well as allowing my blog readers to find other relevant reading options. As much as I want to,¬† I really can’t be the complete, absolute resource to my readers¬† as it is just be running my blog. It doesn’t hurt to me share my traffic. My blog wouldn’t have grown if it hadn’t been for others linking to me.

So when I link to others, in turn those blogs may or may not link to me. It is about building relationships. Bringing people up and not tearing them down.

Too many times lately have I heard or seen others bringing other people down in a variety of ways. I don’t want to be a part of bringing people down. I want to be a person to help build them up!
