Sunday, December 4

You will be catching men alive.—Luke 5:10.


Fish usually stay in an area where the water conditions suit them and where there is plenty of food. Does it matter at what time a fisherman does his work? Regarding the best time to catch literal fish, note what a local Witness on a Pacific island said when he invited a missionary to go fishing. The missionary said, “I’ll meet you at nine o’clock tomorrow morning.” The brother replied, “You do not understand. We go when it is the right time for the fish, not when it is the right time for us.” Likewise, fishers of men in the first century went to places where the “fish” would be and at a time when they were likely to be there. For example, Jesus’ followers preached at the temple and in the synagogues, from house to house, and in the marketplace. (Acts 5:42; 17:17; 18:4) We too need to be familiar with the habits of people who live in our assigned territory. We need to be flexible and preach where and when we are most likely to find people.—1 Cor. 9:19-23. w20.09 4 ¶8-9

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

Four questions to keep in mind when we are in the ministry. WHO is the person I am talking to? WHERE am I talking to people? WHEN is the best time to talk to them? HOW should I talk to them? Answers to you these questions can help us to understand how people would like to be treated. Then we will know the best way to talk to each person.—1 Corinthians 9:19-23
