SOAP: Week 8 - Sirach

SOAP: Scripture verse, Observation, Application, and Prayer.

S - "A kind mouth multiplies friends, and gracious lips prompt friendly greetings." (Sirach 6: 5)

O - It is so important to build each other up with encouragement.  Have you ever met someone who likes to throw little daggers into their conversations?  I guess it is an attempt to belittle someone or make themselves look the better.  This form of communication is a 'red flag' to rely on a someone else who respects others.  This is why it is so important to reach out and give encouragement to others rather than putting them down.

- Greet others with a friendly hello, good morning, or smile.  Be thankful for your friendships and words of compassion will flow through your veins as you communicate.  This is why I like to write about what I am thankful for during the week on this blog.  It is a great way to build up and encourage with gracious attitudes to have about life.

- I pray that strong friendships can flourish in all our countries virtuous communities so that encouragement is fostered which builds confidence and trust.
