Monday, June 17

I will never leave you, and I will never abandon you.—Heb. 13:5.


Your employer may regularly ask you to work overtime on evenings and weekends—times that you have set aside for family worship, field service, and Christian meetings. Courage is required to turn down such regular requests and set the right example for your children. We also show courage when we help our children to set and reach spiritual goals. For instance, some parents may hesitate to encourage their child to pursue a career of pioneering, to serve where the need is greater, to enter Bethel service, or to work on theocratic construction projects. The parents may fear that their child will not be able to care for them when they are old. However, wise parents show courage and put faith in Jehovah’s promises. (Ps. 37:25) Then an added way that you can demonstrate courage and reliance on Jehovah is by helping your child to do the same.—1 Sam. 1:27, 28; 2 Tim. 3:14, 15. w17.09 30 ¶14-15

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.

I was reading this and thinking - which promises specifically are being referred to here? Are they talking about the promise of a New World and that the Great Tribulation is starting soon and so you don't have to worry about growing old and having your kids help take care of you? Or something else?


Well, Psalms 37:25 is cited next and it says,



25 I was once young and now I am old,

But I have not seen anyone righteous abandoned,

Nor his children looking for bread

So, the promise is similar to Jesus words at Matt 6:33 - if you put Kingdom interests first - even if you might grow old in this system and need help from others - Jehovah will make sure "all these other (necessary) things will be added to you."


That's a great promise.

Plan ahead as if Armageddon will not come in your lifetime, but lead your life as if it will come tomorrow (w 2004 Dec. 1 page 29)





Soon .....
