I don't think I've ever watched a complete show, but I AM captivated by this man. Once I got past his face and unusual appearance, I have been taking lessons on how to be an encourager!
Encouragement is a much-needed "ministry" in the church and in the world today. While many examples exist in the Bible, one man was nick-named "Son of Encouragement" because of his reputation. Barnabas' given name was Joses or Joseph, but the apostles gave him the name Barnabas which means "Son of Encouragement or Exhortation" (Acts 4:36). I read more about him in Acts 11:24...
I like what I observe in Stephen Tyler. His words, his facial expressions, the kindness in his eyes, his pleasure in the talent of the young "idols", his appreciation of a good song all seem to elevate the cast of remarkable talents to even higher levels of performance.
I want to be an increasingly better encourager! I've been taking lessons!
