Behind every ‘success’ is an ‘encourager’

Trust men and they will be true to you, treat them greatly and they will show themselves great…Ralph Waldo Emerson

For every Apostle Paul there is a Barnabas
C.S. Lewis had J.R.R. Tolkien;
Henry Ford had Thomas Edison;
Sir Isaac Newton had Edmond Halley;
the list goes on.

When you find a person who has achieved success in this life, you will also find a host of people who have encouraged him or her.  Encouragers challenge, console, applaud, and even push us every now and again to keep moving forward.

Who are we pushing forward with our words and actions?  Life is too short to not chose a person and invest in them greatly.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
