“For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” ~I Thessalonians 5:5-11

Sometimes even the children of the light grow weary and need encouragement. Let us be diligent to build one another up by speaking of our Lord and what he has done for us and is even now doing for us. Let us live in dependence on our God–and edify our brethren by speaking of him among ourselves, even as children do about their father. Let us never be ashamed of speaking to or about our God!
