Support and Encouragement

I have known Mickey since I was in preschool, he’s my good friend Andy‘s dad.  Since he began blogging, I have enjoyed reading his thoughts on running and life, but was particularly struck this morning by his words on support and encouragement.

We all have opportunities to lift one another up like this daily, be it our friends, our co-workers, or random people we encounter in life.  All too often though, it seems to me that we miss opportunities to offer others support or encouragement because we’re too consumed by our own worries, by insecurities, by our competitive nature, by all of that junk that we let separate us from one another.

As I think about it, trash collectors honking at and cheering for runners as they train in the morning, it’s a small glimpse of the kingdom of God.
