Linguists aren’t sure where we concocted our term fan. Some trace fan back to the British term fancy, which, in olden times, meant “to like something very much.” We still occasionally speak of “taking a fancy” to something or someone. Other experts claim the word is a shortened form of  fanatic — someone who is overly enthused about something, such as a sport or celebrity. Regardless of its origin, the word became popular in the late 1880s in America, and we’ve all been fans of something or someone ever since.

If you know someone needing encouragement, consider yourself a one-person fan club. That’s what the apostle Paul was for Timothy, as he exhorted the young man to fan into flame the gift God had given him. Paul reminded Timothy of his heritage, of his testimony, of his calling, and of his Lord. The apostle prayed for his young disciple; and when Timothy came to the end of his earthly life, he could surely have looked back and said, “Thank God I had a fan.”

Help someone gain a sense of approval this weekend. Be their fan.

All around you are people whose lives are filled with trouble and sorrow, and they need your compassion and encouragement.
