Thursday, June 24

There is an appointed time for everything, . . . a time to search and a time to give up as lost.—Eccl. 3:1, 6.


When making decisions, be specific. The more specific you are, the more likely you are to complete what you start. For example, you may have decided to read the Bible more often. But if you do not have a specific schedule in mind, you may not achieve your objective. Or the elders in a congregation may decide to shepherd the flock more often, but after some time, they have not followed through on that decision. To be successful, they could ask such questions as these: “Have we identified the brothers and sisters who could especially benefit from more shepherding? Have we set a specific time to visit them?” Also, be realistic. None of us have the time, resources, or energy to do everything that we would like to do. So be realistic and reasonable. When necessary, you may need to change a decision that was beyond your ability to accomplish. w19.11 29 ¶11-12

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

There may be a time for everything under the sun as Eccl says but our energy and resources may limit us in what we can do. Sometimes we can't even do the least of what we want to do. Jehovah doesn't expect more of us than we can give. Humility helps us to know our limitations and balance helps us to appreciate that we can only do what we can do.

The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah
