The Push - Encouragement

We sometimes underestimate the power of encouragement. So many times one act of kindness, or one word of encouragement, can change a life forever. 

This movie, The Push, gives us encouragement to inspire someone else today - to give a loving push.

"Fall seven times, stand up eight." ~ Japanese Proverb


“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.” ~ Jim Stovall


A push (encouragement) can be the greatest gift we ever receive or the greatest gift we can give to someone else. Sometimes we need a bit of encouragement and sometimes we need to give it to another.

A push can come in many forms:
Action - actually doing something
And what about Silence? Really?
Can you think of other ways to encourage someone else?

I really like what Janet Hou wrote as a comment below the movie: "to know when to "push" and how to "push" and where to "push", is the challenge in life; not the concept of "the push" itself, I think. :)"

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

When is the last time you gave a bit of encouragement to another? What about today? What about now?

May you be Blessed and also be a Blessing to someone else...
