  7. A blind brother and his seeing dog ..... In England, one of our dear blind brothers had a blind dog, who led him faithfully, and brought him to the assembly meetings every week. He was used to leading his brother to the kingdom hall every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. When our brother died, the dog was handed over to another blind man who was not a Jehovah's Witness. The dog puzzled the man fairly. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday the dog was quite excited and wanted to go out, and he always asked his owner to get up and go out with him. At last the man followed the dog, and, without his knowledge, he was taken to the Kingdom hall and led to a seat. The man did not know where he was, but he enjoyed his stay because of the nice welcome he had received. So he began to study the Bible with the witnesses! This experience shows not only that Jehovah can even use his animals to lead someone to the truth, but also the following: If a dog knows where he belongs every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, should we not know it all the more? Jehovah also using animals for a good humans - heart ❤ wonderful

  19. ALBERT EINSTEIN, 1921 "Love is God and God is love" - in a letter from Albert Einstein to his daughter... At the end of the 1980s, Albert Einstein's "lost daughter" handed over 1,400 letters from her father to Hebrew University on the condition that she should publish her at the earliest 20 years after her death. This is an excerpt from a letter: When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me. Which I will show you now, to transfer it to mankind will also Misunderstandings and prejudices in the world. I ask you nevertheless that you protect it all the time, which is necessary, Years, decades until society is advanced enough to get what I want. Next, explain to you. There is an extremely strong force, for which science has not yet been a formal one Explanation. It is a force that includes and regulates all others Which is even behind every phenomenon that is active in the universe and has not yet Identified. This universal power is LOVE. If scientists were looking for a unified theory of the universe, They forgot the invisible and most powerful of all powers. Love is light, since it illuminates the one who gives it and receives it. Love is power, because it makes some people turn to others feel. Love is power because it increases and does not allow the best we have, That humanity is extinguished by its blind egoism. Love shows and is revealed. Love lives and dies through love. Love is God and God is love This power explains everything and gives meaning to life in uppercase letters. This is the variable that we have ignored too long, perhaps because we are facing the Love fear because it is the only power in the universe that man does not Has learned to control according to his will. To make love visible, I have a simple exchange in mine Most famous equation. If we accept instead of E = mc², the Accepting energy to heal the world through love, you can through love Multiplied times the light speed high square to come to the conclusion, That love is the most powerful force that exists because it has no limits. After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces Of the universe that have turned against us, it is imperative that we ourselves From a different kind of energy. If we want our species to survive, when we find a meaning in life If we want to save the world and all the sentient beings that inhabit them, Love is the only and the last answer. Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, an artifact, Which is powerful enough, the total hatred, selfishness and greed that the planet Perthrough; However, each individual carries in itself a small, but Powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be freed. When we learn to give Lieserl this universal energy to give and receive, We will find that love transcends everything, transcends everything and Everything can be, for love is the quintessence of life. I deeply regret not having been able to express this, Which contains my heart, which has quietly struck my whole life for you. Maybe it's too late to apologize, but since the time is relative, I must tell you that I love you and that I, thanks to you, Until the last answer.

  23. By: @bow_tie_bros_comics Going nowhere: Trying to serve Jehovah while also trying to be involved in the world is like trying to use two escalators going in different directions at the same time, and thinking you can still get to the top. The sad reality is that the only thing you will have accomplished by doing this is hurting yourself and possibly stumbling others. We must pick the right path and stick to it if we are to have a real relationship with God.

  26. Lesson for today. 19 "Truthful lips will endure forever, But a lying tongue will last for only a moment." (Prov 12:19) Be Careful of What You Plant. An emperor in the Far East was growing old and knew it was time to choose his successor. Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided something different. He called young people in the kingdom together one day. He said, 'It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor. I have decided to choose one of you.' The kids were shocked! But the emperor continued. 'I am going to give each one of you a seed today. One very special seed…. I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here after one year from today with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the plants that you bring and the one I choose will be the next emperor!' One boy named Ling was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly told his mother the story. She helped him get a pot and planting soil and he planted the seed and watered it carefully. Every day he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other youths began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow. Ling kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks went by. Still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants but Ling didn't have a plant, and he felt like a failure. Six months went by, still nothing in Ling's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Ling didn't say anything to his friends. However he just kept waiting for his seed to grow. A year finally went by and all the youths of the kingdom brought their plants to the emperor for inspection. Ling told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. But honest about what happened. Ling felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right. He took his empty pot to the palace, when Ling arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other youths. They were beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Ling put his empty pot on the floor and many of the other kinds laughed at him. A few felt sorry for him and just said, "Hey nice try." When the emperor arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted the young people. Ling just tried to hide in the back. "What great plants, trees and flowers you have grown,' said the emperor. Today, one of you will be appointed the next emperor:' All of a sudden, the emperor spotted Ling at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered his guards to bring him to the front. Ling was terrified…"The emperor knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me killed!" When Ling got to the front, the Emperor asked his name. ’My name is Ling,' he replied. All the kids were laughing and making fun of him. The emperor asked everyone to quiet down. He looked at Ling and then announced to the crowd, 'Behold your new emperor… His name is Ling!" Ling couldn't believe it. Ling couldn't even grow his seed. How could he be the new emperor? Then the emperor said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone here a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds which would not grow. All of you, except Ling, have brought me trees and plants and flowers, when you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Ling was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new emperor." If you plant honesty, you will reap trust. If you plant goodness, you will reap friends. If you plant humility, you will reap greatness. If you plant perseverance, you will reap victory. If you plant consideration, you will reap harmony. If you plant hard work, you will reap success. If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation. If you plant openness, you will reap intimacy. If you plant patience, you will reap improvements. If you plant faith, you will reap miracles. But If you plant dishonesty, you will reap distrust. If you plant selfishness, you will reap loneliness. If you plant pride, you will reap destruction. If you plant envy, you will reap trouble. If you plant laziness, you will reap stagnation. If you plant bitterness, you will reap isolation. If you plant greed, you will reap loss. If you plant gossip, you will reap enemies. If you plant worries, you will reap wrinkles. If you plant sin, you will reap guilt. Remember your graves because your way passes over it. You will be dealt with as you deal with others, you will reap what you sow and what you send today will meet you tomorrow. So be careful what you plant now, it will determine what you will reap tomorrow, The seeds you now scatter, will make life worse or better, your life or the ones who will come after. Yes, someday, you will enjoy the fruits or you will pay for the choices you plant today. http://www.english-for-students.com/be-careful-of-what-you-plant.html

  27. David and Goliath THE Phi·lisʹtines again come to fight against Israel. David’s three oldest brothers are now in Saul’s army. So one day Jesʹse tells David: ‘Take some grain and loaves of bread to your brothers. Find out how they are getting along.’ When David arrives at the army camp, he runs to the battle line to look for his brothers. The Phi·lisʹtine giant Go·liʹath comes out to make fun of the Israelites. He has been doing this every morning and evening for 40 days. He yells: ‘Choose one of your men to fight me. If he wins and kills me, we will be your slaves. But if I win and kill him, you will be our slaves. I dare you to pick someone to fight me.’ David asks some of the soldiers: ‘What will the man get who kills this Phi·lisʹtine and frees Israel from this shame?’ ‘Saul will give the man many riches,’ the soldier says. ‘And he will give him his own daughter to be his wife.’ But all the Israelites are afraid of Go·liʹath because he is so big. He is more than 9 feet (about 3 meters) tall, and he has another soldier carrying his shield for him. Some soldiers go and tell King Saul that David wants to fight Go·liʹath. But Saul tells David: ‘You can’t fight this Phi·lisʹtine. You are just a boy, and he has been a soldier all his life.’ David answers: ‘I killed a bear and a lion that carried off my father’s sheep. Andthis Phi·lisʹtine will become like one of them. Jehovah will help me.’ So Saul says: ‘Go, and may Jehovah be with you.’ David goes down by a stream and gets five smooth stones, andputs them into his bag. Then he takes his sling and goes out to meet the giant. When Go·liʹathsees him, he can’t believe it. He thinks it will be so easy to kill David. ‘Just come to me,’ Go·liʹath says, ‘and I will give your body to the birds and animals to eat.’ But David says: ‘You come to me with a sword, a spear and a javelin, but I am coming to you with the name of Jehovah. This day Jehovah will give you into my hands and I will strike you down.’ At that David runs toward Go·liʹath. He takes a stone from his bag, puts it into his sling, andthrows it with all his might. The stone flies straight into Go·liʹath’s head, and he falls down dead! When the Phi·lisʹtines see that their champion has fallen, they all turn and run. The Israelites run after them and win the battle. 1 Samuel 17:1-54. We today show courage and faith in Jehovah of Armies he will help us to fight all our battles. jw.org IMG_2929.MP4

  39. I do not agree with this statement offered above - it is words of a man. I have not seen a statement in the bible which sAys that we should avoid those at war with themselves. HOw does one define the outward symptoms of being at war with yourself? WE are all at war with the fleshly part of our existence as apposed to being perfectly in line with JehovAh and his spirit - as duly noted by one of the replies. WE must be cAreful not to judge those who have emotional issues because the bible says we must deal tenderly with those who are experiencing distress. I can imagine the stress a person must feel when they are at war with themselves - whatever the personAl baggage that has brought this about. Being deceitful, indecisive about serving Jehovah whole-souled, being stupid (according to the bible this means that one acts outside the "knowledge of Jehovah" and NOT the definition of being at war with yourself) now this is a different matter. I do however agree that we must be cAreful that associations do not influence us negatively. Be careful of self-righteousness - this can cause even greater dAmage in a congregation. I knew a sister who was always avoiding people becAuse they were doing things that she deemed unworthy of association. It caused tremendous uneasiness when people were Around her and she hurt many feelings- tHis is the otherr side of the coin. I did not write this to start a debate but merely do make my fellow worshipers think about their words And actions - imperfection and injustice can make us condemn where condemnation is not needed. AN anointed sister once gave me the best advice EVER! SHe said: when in doubt About what to do - show love. WE can assist the weak and help strenghen those around us who are suffering and having issues. WIth patience And love we can win And support them And help them adjust their attitude. LOve nevr fails! IT hopes all things. USually the elders will guide us to mark those who need adjustment. WE should not be going around indiscriminately marking people inside the congregation. THose outside the congregation is of course are not our associates.
