Thursday, December 17

No crushed reed will he break, and no smoldering wick will he extinguish.—Isa. 42:3.


Jesus understood the feelings of those who were figuratively like a bruised reed or the wick of an oil lamp about to go out. As a result, he was considerate, kind, and patient. (Mark 10:14) Of course, we do not have Jesus’ insight and teaching ability! But we can—and should—be considerate of the people in our territory. That includes how we speak to them, when we do so, and for how long. Today, countless millions have been “skinned and thrown about” by corrupt and heartless commercial, political, and religious leaders. (Matt. 9:36) As a result, many people are cynical and without hope. How important, then, that we be kind and compassionate in our choice of words and also in our tone of voice! Indeed, many are drawn to our message not only because of our Bible knowledge or sound reasoning but also because of our genuine interest in them and our thoughtful manner. w18.09 31-32 ¶13-14

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Jesus is very different with corrupt and heartless commercial, political and religious leaders not just in his ministry on Earth but with his congregation today. We imitate his considerate, kind and patient approach to people in our territory. We see the results of our ministry around the world when we learn of those whose hope to God has enlightened by the truths they learn in the Bible.

All glory and praises goes to Jehovah :)
