Tuesday, September 11

I will show a waiting attitude.—Mic. 7:7.


Jehovah always supports his faithful servants, even though he may allow them to wait for privileges or a favorable change of circumstances. He promised Abraham a son, but the patriarch had to exercise faith and patience. (Heb. 6:12-15) Although he waited years for Isaac’s birth, Abraham did not lose heart, and Jehovah did not disappoint him. (Gen. 15:3, 4; 21:5) Waiting is not easy. (Prov. 13:12) If we were to brood over disappointments, we could become very discouraged. Instead, it is wise to use our time to improve our spiritual qualifications. By reading God’s Word and meditating on it, we can develop wisdom, insight, good judgment, knowledge, thinking ability, and soundness of mind. Daily, we face issues involving entertainment, dress and grooming, managing money, and getting along with others. By applying what we learn from the Bible, we can make decisions that please Jehovah. w16.08 3:9-11

Brood. What a powerful word. 

The next time we feel discouraged,  negative or have a complaining attitude, we should check if are brooding over something and then just let it go....


It *is* powerful!!  I looked it up for detail.  As a verb, it was originally used to describe the action of a hen incubating her eggs.  In the context of the commentary above, it means to dwell gloomily on a subject, to think deeply about something that makes one unhappy, "he brooded over his need to find a wife" (actual example in the dictionary! :D ).


I know I have a broody mentality at times... and it's interestingly comforting at times. 😕  Our minds can be dangerous places to rest, sometimes... 


Excellent text!
