God wants us to do good to all people. He also wants us to help and do good to others who have accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord. We should pray for our Christian brothers and sisters.
Have you noticed that friends treat you differently? There are those that make you happy! There are others that make you feel bad. God's Word calls them encouragers and discouragers. Which describes the kind of friend you want to be? Do you sometimes make a friend feel bad about who they are, or how they look?
God has told us that we must be encouragers. When we see someone who is discouraged we should show them kindness. Showing God's love can bring hope to others.
