S – Scripture: Proverbs 10:21 (NLT)
The words of the godly encourage many, but fools are destroyed by their lack of common sense.

O - Observation
I cannot impress enough the importance of having godly people in your life who can speak into yours. When going through testing and downright difficult times I have been so encouraged by words from godly people, their words have given me the strength that I felt I lacked to go on.   To me it has been a matter of survival.

A - Application
I know I have and continue to build relationships with godly people, ones that can speak into my life and even bring correction.  My encouragement is that no matter what stage in your walk of faith you are at.  Whether you are at a high point in your life, a low one or somewhere in between you and I need to make building these relationships a life priority. There is a personal investment in this and so worthy of pursuing.

P - Prayer
Let the words I speak be an encouragement to many.
