I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong—that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. Romans 1:11-12
Anytime Christians are together there should be an exchange of spiritual gifts. Too often the back and forth amounts to gossip and complaints, not encouragement like there should be. Paul expected to come away from his time with the Romans encouraged and built up. Let’s make this our goal in all interactions, to leave the other party bolstered in their walk, not blistered!
