I’ve always found that phrase so funny and yet I use it all the time. All the time. Let me encourage you to trust in the Lord. Let me encourage you to exercise more. Let me encourage you to forgive him. And you know what it actually means, don’t you? In Christianese, it really means you need to. Am I right? But, it just sounds better to have the word encourage in there. Who doesn’t like encouragement? So, when you need to tell someone what to do, just encourage them. I’m just sayin’.
