•••••••••••••( Juan 13:35 )••••••••••••• EN WARWICK N.Y. Mientras el mundo se pone tatuajes y piercings y se deforman orejas y otras partes del cuerpo, o se tiñen el cabello de colores llamativos y hasta se hacen horribles cortes de cabello o siguen modas de vestir exageradas para identificarse de todos los demás. Los Testigos de Jehová aprendemos mediante nuestro estudio personal de la Biblia, la asistencia regular a nuestras reuniones y en nuestro dia de adoración en familia a cultivar amor en nuestra personalidad. Nos vestimos de una nueva personalidad cristiana, porqué queremos ser diferentes del mundo, al arreglarnos, al hablar, pensar y actuar como lo hace Jehová e imitar la manera sobresaliente como lo hizo Jesucristo, nuestro Rey. Y lo hacemos porqué rechazamos al mundo alejado de Dios y sus practicas, y por que amamos a Jehová nuestro Dios sobre todas las cosas y a nuestro projimo como a nosotros mismos, y además porqué tenemos amor a toda nuestra asociación de hermanos en el mundo. Sí, nosotros somos discípulos de Cristo y nuestros modales y conducta cristiana nos hacen diferentes de todo el mundo y así damos honra a nuestro gran Dios Jehová, y a nuestro Rey Cristo, al que servimos.

“Now that you have put away falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor.”—EPH. 4:25.
Normally it is with our family that we have the closest bond. To strengthen this bond, it is vital that we speak truthwith one another.
Many problems and misunderstandings can be reduced or eliminated by being open, honest, and kind in our communication.
For example, when we make a mistake, do we hesitate to acknowledge it to our mate, to our children, or to other close family members?
Offering a sincere apology from the heart helps to promote peace and unity within the family.—Read 1 Peter 3:8-10.
Speaking truth does not mean that we should be blunt, tactless. Being rude does not increase the value of the truthor its impact. Paul said: “Let all malicious bitterness and anger and wrath and screaming and abusive speech be taken away from you along with all badness. But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.” (Eph. 4:31, 32)
When we speak in a kind and dignified manner, it elevates our message and shows honor to those to whom we speak.—Matt. 23:12.

What Do Our Words Reveal? - Safeguard Your Heart! ❤️
How can we determine what we have treasured up in our heart?
What we usually talk about is a good indication of what our heart is set on. Do we often talk about material things and secular achievements? Or do our conversations frequently center on spiritual things and theocratic goals? Rather than advertising the mistakes of others, are we lovingly inclined to cover them over?
(Proverbs 10:11-12) . . .The mouth of the righteous one is a source of life; but as regards the mouth of the wicked ones, it covers up violence. 12 Hatred is what stirs up contentions, but love covers over even all transgressions."
(1 Peter 4:15)
However, let none of YOU suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a busybody in other people’s matters."
Do we tend to talk a great deal about people and the goings-on in their lives but little about principles and ideas? Could this be a signal that we are taking undue interest in other people’s personal affairs?
(Luke 6:45) A good man brings forth good out of the good treasure of his heart, for out of the heart’s abundance his mouth speaks."
(Galatians 5:22-23) . . .On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
All Christians ought to be alert to discern what their prayers reveal?

"Every man must be swift about hearing, slow about speaking, slow about wrath.”
Generally, children love their parents, and parents love their children. This is especially true among God’s people.
Some families agree to spend less time watching television or using the computer.
Others decide to eat at least one meal together each day.
Family worship is a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to get to know one another better as they study the Bible together.
The Bible says: “A person’s thoughts are like water in a deep well, but someone with insight can draw them out.” (Proverbs 20:5, Today’s English Version)
When anyone is replying to a matter before he hears it, that is foolishness on his part and a humiliation.” (Proverbs 18:13)
If you stay calm and listen, you may be able to understand the reason for your child’s “wild talk.” (Job 6:1-3)
You can help your child only if you understand the whole situation. As loving parents, listen to your children and try to understand them so that you can say something that really helps them. 4 No greater joy do I have than this: that I should hear that my children go on walking in the truth." (3 John 4)
We will make mistakes. So be quick to say “I’m sorry.” Forgive freely. “Be harmoniously joined together in love.” (Colossians 2:2)
Love has power. It helps us to be patient and kind. Love helps us to stay calm and to forgive. “It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
If you keep showing love, communication in your family will get better and better. This will make you happy and will honor Jehovah.
