I was reading a book about church government and I was learning a lot of things when at the end of the book the author recommended building others up. Wow, this came to me as a surprise, I did not know how to react.I was so used to self improvement that I honestly did not know how to build others up. Probably for the next week or month I will examine ways of building others up without flattering or offending people.
This principle of building others up as I think about it is shown by God Himself, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Father glorified the Son, the Son glorified the Father, the Holy Spirit speak what He heard from the Father and the Son. The Father and the Son gave back the honor to the Holy Spirit by warning mankind that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable.
Glory to God in the Highest and goodwill to all men. As of now the best I could think of building others up is through the gift of the Holy Spirit which the gift of being able to help others, in different genuine ways. But as I said I felt that this is somewhat unnatural for me so I hope I can really make progress. Perhaps I will have to look at how others mentored me and learn from those.
