This morning as I was preparing for the day I could hear the screeching of sirens in the distance, as they raced to some emergency. As I stood in a very quiet peaceful house in comfort, I thought about how at that moment somewhere there was chaos. Enough chaos that several emergency vehicles were going as fast as they could to that spot, to help restore some order to the chaos. I find it quite interesting how there can be peace in one place and chaos in another, and yet those places be so close together.
So today, if you are enjoying peace – and of course I am now talking about on the inside – reach out to someone who is living in chaos and offer them encouragement. Find someone who needs it, it really shouldn’t be that hard, and encourage them.
And if you are in some chaos yourself you still may want to find someone else to encourage. It will probably help you as well.
11Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 New International Version (NIV)
