  1. Young Ones—Do Not Seek Great Things for Yourselves: (15 min.) Play and discuss the video Young People Ask—What Will I Do With My Life?—Looking Back Looking Back Many young people have had to decide how to employ their lives. Two Christians, think back to the decision they had to take when they were younger. Reflections Live, and raised in a religiously divided family, and his relatives who were not witnesses, encouraged him to become a career in the American football world. Susan, had embarked on a career in the music world when I started studying the Bible. I loved football, to tell the truth I loved every aspect of it. I loved strong emotions, racing, and action. Well, I was literally kidnapped by the work. I love classic music, it makes you feel the contact with the audience, and it’s great. I was third in a national standings, and my name was on the front page in sports newspapers. I debuted as a professional at Eugene in Oregon, I participated in programs for young artists in the Central City opera, and at the Oldenburg Festival. I also sang at the Tangwood Festival. Received offers from the best universities, but I chose to visit U.S. January 12, 1990. We went to the stadium, told me that thousands of people would shout my name. Then I saw a word with my name, and on the board we read, Live we want you, and I thought I was too loud. Doubts I was baptized on July 31, 1993. I was beginning to have doubts about my career in the world of work. There was a scripture that was very important to me, 2 Corinthians 5:15: “That we may live no longer for ourselves, but for the one who died for us.” This writing strikes me deeply because then I lived for myself. My father talked to me about biblical principles concerning worldly companies, and the atmosphere that breathes in the world of football. Then he made me think about what I wanted to do in the future, saying that if I wanted to serve Jehovah, I could not do both of these things. Turning Point During my return journey, I gave informal testimony to the lady sitting beside me. At some point I said, look a bit, you’re trying to explain to her, how she should live, just you. I realized that singing did not give me the joy of once, and I thought, no one obliged me to continue, so I decided to leave the music. ……. Jehovah Does Not Forget Your Love.pdf
    • Hello guest!
  2. The meetings are like a dinner party where we have the opportunity to enjoy a lovingly prepared meal in the way of Bible education. We show appreciation for this gathering by bringing our own dish to pass (our well prepared comments) and by partaking of the food that is being offered (paying attention as the talks are presented). It could be viewed as rude to habitually arrive to the gathering late or to leave before it ends. Also, this is a great time to catch up with old friends or meet new ones. We also want to be alert to thank the loving waiters (those who give parts on the program) for all their hard work. As well as to clean up after ourselves so the hall is ready for the next group coming in for a delicious meal. Most importantly we should thank the Host (Prayer to Jehovah) for arranging such beautiful gatherings where we can be nourished and refreshed. Matthew 24:45-" Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?" Heb 10:25-"not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near."
  3. Is it not a joy to read this weeks Watchtower and say to yourself; That was written just for me? Do You See the Need to Train Others? “I will give you good instruction.”—PROV. 4:2. You may ask, ‘How can I train my student to study the Bible regularly?’ A good start is by showing him how to prepare for the study you conduct with him. You might suggest that he read portions of the appendix of the What Does the Bible Really Teach? book and look up cited scriptures. Help him to prepare for the meetings with the goal of commenting. Encourage him to read every issue of The Watchtower and Awake! If the Watchtower Library or Watchtower ONLINE LIBRARY is available in his language, you can show him how to use it to answer Bible questions. As a result of such help, very likely your Bible student will soon be delighting in his personal study of God’s Word. Training others is vitally important because of increasing needs and opportunities to serve Jehovah. The examples of training provided by Jesus and Paul remain valid. Jehovah wants his modern-day servants to be well-trained for their theocratic assignments. God gives us the privilege of helping less experienced ones develop their ability to do the work needed in the congregation. As conditions deteriorate in the world and new opportunities to preach continue to arise, such training becomes both important and urgent. Of course, training people takes time and effort. But Jehovah and his beloved Son will support us and give us wisdom to provide such training. We will rejoice as we see those whom we assist go on ‘working hard and exerting themselves.’ (1 Tim. 4:10) And may we ourselves continue to make spiritual progress in rendering sacred service to Jehovah. jw.org
