en (courage) ment

This picture is probably very familiar to you, so there is no need to explain how it came about. Yet, I wonder, how did this person find the courage to do this? Here is one possibility.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 (WEB)
14) We exhort you, brothers, admonish the disorderly, encourage the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient toward all.
(1 Thessalonians 5:14, WEB)

It is a truism that none of us lives to himself and none of us dies to himself. On a daily basis, we use our support system to handle this crazy world around us. I really do not know anything about the person in the picture, but somebody, somewhere encouraged him a LOT! How much more do Christians need encouragement!! Look around, there is more and more opposition to being a Christian. It might be a good idea to actually listen to Paul and do this. Hint, Hint!!!
