Greeting In Appreciation.

Key Verse

“Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles” (Romans 16: 3-4).

Text — Romans 16:1-7


Greeting is an important social skill that exists in every human culture, establishing the mood for interactions. Greetings can communicate acceptance, acknowledgment of one’s importance or contribution and appreciation for that contribution. Paul in our text, was greeting his friends in Rome and sending greetings from those with him in Corinth, teaching us the need to greet or salute one another, most importantly, appreciating those who have done well in labouring for God. When you greet a man for doing well, he will be encouraged to do more. Thus, greeting in appreciation of good deeds could motivate and encourage others to do greater things for God and humanity.
Instead of criticizing people who are labouring in God’s house, let them feel appreciated. Let’s follow the good example of Apostle Paul in appreciating people by simple greetings. Hurts from past relationships might make you hesitant to form new relations. However, Jesus was hurt too, so don’t isolate yourself, rather pursue holy relationship with other believers. God desires us to express warm greetings towards others – people need attention, affection, appreciation and acceptance.


Express warm greetings towards others


Appreciate and encourage someone today.

Prayer for today

Help me Lord, to appreciate those who make efforts.
