Hebrews 10:24-25 says
“and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good
deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of
some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the

“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as
you also are doing.”
