Sunday, August 19

Some are walking disorderly among you.—2 Thess. 3:11.

 

We need to follow the Bible-based direction we receive from the elders. Recall Paul’s counsel regarding disorderly ones in the congregation. Some individuals were ‘meddling with what did not concern them.’ They were evidently admonished by the elders but persisted in disregarding the counsel. How was the congregation to deal with such a person? Paul directed: “Keep this one marked and stop associating with him.” That counsel was balanced with the caution not to treat such a person as an enemy. (2 Thess. 3:11-15) Today, elders may give a warning talk about someone’s persisting in a course that reflects badly on the congregation, such as dating an unbeliever. (1 Cor. 7:39) How do you react to their counsel? If you are aware of the situation described in the talk, will you take care to avoid socializing with such an individual? Your loving concern and firm stand may move the person to abandon a disorderly course. w16.11 2:13

**This text is another great reminder that we can’t hide anything from Jehovah. We may hide things from our friends, but Jehovah will reveal these things because First, he wants us to ask for the help from those appointed to assist us and Second, he will not let his congregation be tainted.

We all have to give an account to him for what we do, so let’s not let something or someone cause us to lose out on our prospect of everlasting life.
