Trust in Jehovah and do what is good . . . and act with faithfulness.—Ps. 37:3.


Jehovah expects us to put to good use the abilities with which he has endowed us. Why? Because he loves us, and he knows that it brings us satisfaction when we employ these gifts. At the same time, Jehovah knows that humans have limitations. On our own, we can never eliminate imperfection, sin, and death; neither can we control other people, for all have free will. (1 Ki. 8:46) And no matter how much knowledge or experience we gain, we will always be like children in comparison with Jehovah. (Isa. 55:9) In all circumstances, we need to lean on Jehovah for guidance, trusting in him to support us and do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. At the same time, we should do what we can, taking appropriate action to solve problems and help others. In short, we need both ‘to trust in Jehovah and to do what is good’; we need ‘to act with faithfulness.’ w17.01 1:2-4

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
