Friday, January 1

Go, . . . and make disciples of people of all the nations.—Matt. 28:19.

 

All of God’s faithful servants want to learn how they can “fully accomplish” the ministry that they have been given to do. (2 Tim. 4:5) After all, this work is more important and more urgent than any other occupation in life. However, it can be a challenge to spend as much time in the ministry as we would like. Other important activities demand our time and energy. We may have to work secularly many hours a day to provide the necessities of life for ourselves and our family. We may struggle with other family responsibilities, sickness, depression, or the aches and pains of advancing age. If our circumstances limit the amount of time we can spend in Jehovah’s service, we should not feel discouraged. Jesus knew that not every one of us would be able to produce the same amount of Kingdom fruitage. (Matt. 13:23) Jehovah highly values everything we do in his service as long as we are doing our best.—Heb. 6:10-12. w19.04 2 ¶1-3

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

This is a beautiful text,  I often think of my elderly mother and the things she has done, the hours in Jehovah's service.. although now she's old and sick she has the comfort of knowing that Jehovah doesn't forget. 

 

We too know that so long as we give our best to Jehovah he values all that we do.

Thank you from another elderly mother old and sick..

One small crack doesn't mean you are broken; it means that you were put to the test and didn't fall apart..

Jesus knew that not every one of us can produce the same of Kingdom fruitage because of our different circumstances like struggle with other family responsibilities, sickness, depression, or the aches and pains of advancing age. Jehovah appreciates all the best we are doing.

All glory and praises goes to Jehovah :)

What a loving reminder in our text today. We shouldn't let circumstances such as Covid-19 discourage us. Just keep focusing on giving Jehovah your best.
