A times I will greet a brother or a sister at the Kingdom Hall and I will ask them how they are. They look at me with tired eyes and say, I'm H.E.R.E. This poem is for all of us who are glad that you are H.E.R.E.   The kids were cranky, your husband was late. The dinner you had ready on time just had to wait. But you're H.E.R.E.   A long week in service with 'I'm not Interested' and most not at home. You just like to have some time all alone. But you're H.E.R.E.   The job was exhausting, you come home feeling beat. You keep thinking you have that deadline to meet. But you're H.E.R.E.   Your eyesight is failing, you can't hear all the talk. Your legs feel feeble, it's a challenge to walk. But you're H.E.R.E.   You've faced challenges, you've faced trial. You pushed yourself that last mile. But you're H.E.R.E.   So we're happy you made it, we know it took courage. You didn't let the world get you discouraged. Because when you're H.E.R.E. at the meetings you're really   H-elping E-veryone R-emain E-ncouraged  

Have you ever enjoyed a really good book? Perhaps it "grabbed hold of you" so that you were unable to put it down until you finished it. The book had a great plot, and kept you on the edge of your seat as the hero narrowly escaped many dangers.

Now suppose that, about a year after you finish reading this great book, you see an ad that shows that book has been made into a movie with a rating acceptable to Christians. So you go to see this movie, and as you watch it, you find that, unlike most book-to-movie translations, this movie is faithful to the book down to the finest detail!

In fact, the scary parts are just as scary as they were in the book. But while other movie-goers who have not read the book are grasping the armrests on their chairs, you aren't as afraid, because you've read the book, and you know exactly how the hero makes it out of this situation. In fact, as the movie progresses, others start to look at their watches to find out how much time is left in the movie... but you don't have to, because you've read the book, and you know where in relation to the ending you currently are, and thus how much time is left.

Well, the end of this system of things is just like a movie... and some of the parts are very scary. But while we may be "on the edge of our chairs" at times by what we see on the screen, we are not scared as the rest are; because we have read the book, and this movie is faithful to the book down to the finest detail.

We know where we are in the end of this system of things by what we see around us because we've read the book. We know what is going to happen next, because we've read the book. We are not in fear as the rest are, because we've read the book

Jehovah doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called

He who angers you, controls you!

He who is good at making excuses is seldom good for anything else

He who kneels before Jehovah can stand before any man!

 

How many of you have flown on an airplane? You know when the flight attendant comes out and goes thought the little spiel about, "Here's how to handle an emergency," and they always mention that the mask drops down and that, if you have a small child with you, they say to first put the mask on yourself and then on the child; for obvious reasons. If we were to pass out in the process of trying to help the child, both would lose. So first, we put ourselves in a position to be strong enough to help the individual, and then we help the child. In the same way, we can't love others if we don't respect ourselves. We need to love ourselves.

 

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up: It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning, the lion wakes up: It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: When the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

When your feet hit the floor running in the morning what motivates you? Fear or a sense of mission?
