The Law of Empowerment Part 13

Comfort Others- 2 Corinthians 1:2-4

God promises to comfort us in our troubles, then asks us to share that comfort with others. Remember, we can’t give away what we don’t possess. We are to pass on what God gives to us. We don’t receive as an end in itself, but as a means to an end. We are to empower others with the power God gives us. Leaders who empower others offer these gifts:

  1. Accountability
    They help others keep their commitments to God.
  2. Affirmation
    They speak words of support and encouragement.
  3. Assessment
    They evaluate others’ progress, offering an objective perspective.
  4. Advice
    They offer words of wise counsel and direction .
  5. Admonishment
    They lend words of caution, rebuke, or correction.
  6. Assets
    They give tangible resources to help their people reach their goals.
  7. Acceptance
    They provide unconditional love, regardless of the recipients’ identity.
  8. Application
    They help others find places to apply and practice what they learn.
