Barnabas was a man who had the gift of encouragement. Acts 4:36 introduces him as, “Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation).” The apostles gave him a nickname that meant “encouragement.”
By looking at some events in the life of Barnabas recorded in the book of Acts, we can learn some ways to encourage others.
