Practicing Affirmation

Sam Crabtree, executive pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church, has written an excellent book entitled, “Practicing Affirmation.” I have found great benefit from this book. And I trust that those around me have been benefitted from what I have learned as well. The book helps to illumine the meaning and application of passages such as Romans 15:2, “Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.” Crabtree writes, …

Affirmation is like an invigoration sudsy shower after a long day of manual labor. It’s like a cool rain after a long, hot dry spell. It delivers a combination of relief, respite, hope, optimism, satisfaction, and energy. It’s life-giving. It blesses.  (p. 41).

It would surely do you (and those around you) well to read the book. If you have enough other things on your plate, the good news is that you can listen to, download or watch an interview with the author here. In an hour, you can get a real feel for the book. Those around you will be thankful you did.
