Gospel Nugget for today . . . .
In the book of Acts, we read about Barnabas, who was known as the "Son of Encouragement". He was "a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith" and encouraged others so "that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord" His acts of encouragement must have had a wide and strong sphere of influence. The human spirit rings with hope at the sound of an encouraging word.
