Brad had hit a “wall” in his business. Frustrated by his lack of progress, he reached out to Matt for some direction. After listening to Brad’s situation, it appeared Brad was doing all the right things, yet he was discouraged.
Matt realized that Brad didn’t need a “Friend with Knowledge”, he needed a “Friend with Encouragement.” Matt knew what to do, he encouraged Brad to overcome the adversity!
Every one of us has the “Friend of Encouragement” through Jesus Christ. He said in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have troubles. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Today, be encouraged. Turn to Jesus and surround yourself with friends who speak Truth and Encouragement into your journey.
