Comfort and encouragement are much alike. When we encourage another person, we give them a pat on the back and offer them praise. This can help someone know it is worthwhile to keep doing the right thing; otherwise they may get discouraged. Just as each of us needs encouragement, we also need comfort. Comfort basically means to make someone feel better about something that deeply bothers them; it helps them get through a hard time in life. Comfort addresses sorrow and pain, while encouragement inspires others with courage or cheers them up. Since the need for comfort is so necessary, it is an important topic in the Bible. The goal of this lesson is to teach us the source of true comfort and how each of us can be a comforter to others.
