The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped. Proverbs 11:24-25

Some of us may think “What have I got that anyone would want” “What have I got to give.” We may feel too tired and too empty to reach out to anyone else. We all need to be aware we have a great gift, given to us by God, and it is a gift we can all pass on. It is the gift of encouragement. When we share our victories, and our failures with other they can receive encouragement from our battles, knowing that although we have not reached our goal we are still persevering. Others can learn for our successes and failures. We too can be encouraged as we share them when we realize how far we have moved forward in our recovery walk.
