Recognition. In the professional world, this concept is of vital importance. People will explain how recognition relates to retention and engagement, and a host of other statistics. Interestingly, Paul talks about it in the church. In 1 Thessalonians 5:12-14, Paul talks about the importance of admonishing and encouraging people for the work they do. Do we thank people? Do we take the time to revognize and appreciate those in our Christian walk who push us and help us grow? Paul is very clear that we are to admonish each other in love. Who do we need to spend time recognizing and encouraging today?
