Monday, May 7

Let the one who thinks he is standing beware that he does not fall.—1 Cor. 10:12.

 

Sharing the good news with others can help us to cultivate humility and various aspects of the fruitage of God’s spirit. (Gal. 5:22, 23) What is more, as we display the Christlike personality, we adorn our message, which may affect the attitude of some householders. For example, two Witnesses in Australia listened respectfully to a householder who spoke very unkindly to them. Later, however, she regretted her manner and wrote to the branch office. In part, she said: “To those two very patient and humble individuals, I would like to convey my apology for my most self-righteous and condescending behaviour. I am a fool to stand before two people spreading God’s Word and attempt to steer them away like that.” Would the householder have written that if the publishers had shown even a hint of anger? Probably not. Yes, how beneficial our ministry is—both for ourselves and for our neighbors! w16.06 2:12, 13

We all encounter temptations and it could be as simple everyday advertisements and the products we buy. It is risky to become overconfident about what we will or will not do even on more serious matters. It shows that we have no idea bout the power of sin. We need to bear in mind that Satan is the master manipulator and he is very dangerous if we do not keep our spiritual armor in tact. We never want to be complacent. If we sense an improper motive, we should not be discouraged. We should pray to Jehovah and/or even ask for help from the elders.
