Saint Barnabas's name, "Son of Encouragement," likely suggests that Barnabas frequently encouraged and comforted those struggling. Think of a time when someone encouraged you to continue on a course that was difficult. Think of how much this meant to you. Think of a time when you did this for someone else.
Dear Jesus, help me to appreciate how you encourage me. Help me to notice opportunities to encourage others.
