How many times have you been standing in the grocery store line and thought, "I really like her shirt." or "I love those earrings." or "She has such pretty eyes." Then you go on your merry way to your next errand and never say a word.
Sometimes it probably just doesn't occur to us to say what we are thinking. But it might be that we are too insecure or jealous or afraid to say something nice. I know I feel that way if I feel like I'm "less" than that person. But that's exactly when I should say it - just to get over myself.
There can be so much competition, jealousy and judging between women. It's easy to forget we are on the same side. We are all in this thing called "life" together. Let's build each other up and make allies not enemies!
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:13 NIV 1984
