His point was: if you love something, you find time


Tis very true, but on the other hand, sometimes getting into a routine is hard, even strenuous until you are in it. I would liken it to going to a gym. At the beginning it is super hard maybe can seem even annoying and then you let it rest for a while and keep trying to get back to a routine. Once you've been going to the gym for months regularly, you no longer want to miss it.

Br. Lösch emphasized that the new Bible is primarily for the ministry; he encouraged us not to read the new Bible with a view to criticizing the translation. He also said it is not an aid to learning Hebrew/Greek.


On a personal note, it impressed me to know that Br. Lösch 'practises what he preaches'. (Those in attendance would recall that he really emphasized the need to read the Bible daily. Not regularly!) He admitted that he reads the Bible every day, with the goal of completing it every year. 


You have already read some of the tips he gave for effective reading, such as not doing it before bedtime (goodnight cigarette illustration). One that stuck in my head was not listening to audio recordings of the Bible while driving. He recommended listening to Awake recordings etc instead. I was touched that the FDS really want us to hold the word of God, a love-letter from Jehovah to us, with the highest regard!

Indeed - I prefer NW ref. for learning usage of Hebrew and Greek words - and, of course, KIT for the Greek.


As I am a very slow reader - partly because I study and meditate rather than simply reading - I have found simply keeping up with our assigned Bible reading for each week is a good goal.


I have lost count of how many times we have read the entire Bible since I joined the ministry school in 1958.


On topic - how many languages is NW published in now?
