    lighting the w-a-y

    Your word is a lamp to my foot, And a light for my path. (Psalm 119:105)

    A psalmist said in prayer to Yahweh/Jehovah: “Your word is a lamp to my foot, and a light to my roadway.” (Psalm 119:105) God’s statements and reminders are found in the Bible, and they can help us to overcome obstacles that we may encounter on our path. Indeed, when we read the Bible and let it guide us, we are experiencing firsthand what is described at Isaiah 30:21: “Your own ears will hear a word behind you saying: ‘This is the way. Walk in it, you people.’”

    17 There is no doubt that Yahweh/Jehovah provides guidance. The question is, Will you submit to it? To understand the direction that Yahweh/Jehovah provides, make it your resolve to read a portion of the Bible each day. Meditate on what you read, try to perceive Yahweh/Jehovah’s will in matters, and think of different ways that the material could apply in your life. (1 Timothy 4:15) Then use your “power of reason” when you make personal decisions.​—Romans 12:1. [excerpts: Let God’s Word Guide Your Steps W 07 5/1 pp. 16, 18 (God’s Holy Name in Hebrew: Yahweh. English translation: Jehovah: accepted by many scholars)

    p.s. my heart and prayers go out to All…

    another tragic event: Earthquake hit October 6th

    (couple years ago past tragic event: Hurricane Matthew hit on October 6th also.)

    My Fam and i were recently at a First Responders’ Training Educational Event…and one practical point took away: You cannot change the event…however, MORE PREPARATION means less damage. Less preparation means MORE DAMAGE!!

    i’ve always felt life is a pop quiz…what does one do about pop, unexpected quizzes??…YOU PREPARE! YOU STUDY! YOU READY?!?!

    With world-wide disasters…popping up here/there/anywhere/anytime: are You personally prepared for Earthquake, Hurricane, Flood, Fire, Terrorist Activity, Shooting, Political Revolutions, Mobs, Ect., …having a plan (evacuation and Other) and a to-go bag with on-hand supplies…is practical.

    Not talking undue anxiety…just preparedness…modesty.

    the best book that has helped me the most with my personal pop quizzes…tough, tragic, and otherwise: The Bible…old and new testament; there is so MUCH wisdom practical to modern-living and surviving/thriving!:)

    disasters…popping up: are You personally prepared for Earthquake, Hurricane, Flood, Fire, Terrorist Activity, Tsunami, You name it..having a plan and a to-go bag with on-hand supplies…is practical…logical…a head light.

    i intend to pass my pop quizzes! 🙂

    Elevated Morality = Elevated Mind

    Elevated Morality = Elevated Mind = Elevated Intelligence = Elevated Values = Elevated Practices = Elevated Religion = Elevated Personality Embodied = Elevated Morality = Elevated Mind (thinking/solving) = Elevated Values/Practices/Religion = Elevated Person/Elevated Personality Embodied/Epitomized = Elevated Morality REALITY

    example(s) for contemplation(s)/meditation(s)/reflection(s)…(excerpted reading ’06)

    What can we learn from the prohibition found at Exodus 23:19: “You must not boil kid in its mother’s milk”?

    This directive of the Mosaic Law, which appears three times in the Bible, can help us appreciate Jehovah’s sense of propriety, his compassion, and his tenderness. It also highlights his abhorrence of false worship.​—Exodus 34:26; Deuteronomy 14:21.

    To boil a young goat or other animal in its mother’s milk would be contrary to Jehovah’s natural arrangement of things. God provided the mother’s milk to nourish the kid and help it grow. Cooking the kid in the milk of its own mother would, in the words of one scholar, display “a contempt of the relation which God has established and sanctified between parent and young.”

    Further, some suggest that boiling a kid in its mother’s milk may have been a pagan ritual performed to produce rain. If that was the case, the prohibition would have served to protect the Israelites from the senseless and heartless religious practices of the nations surrounding them. The Mosaic Law specifically forbade the Israelites to walk in the statutes of those nations.​—Leviticus 20:23.

    Finally, we see in this particular law Jehovah’s tender compassion. Actually, the Law contained a number of similar injunctions against cruelty to animals and safeguards against working contrary to the natural order of things. For instance, the Law included commands that prohibited sacrificing an animal unless it had been with its mother for at least seven days, slaughtering both an animal and its offspring on the same day, and taking from a nest both a mother and her eggs or offspring.​—Leviticus 22:27, 28; Deuteronomy 22:6, 7.

    JUST & Not Just…

    Clearly, the Law was not just a complex set of commands and prohibitions. Among other things, its principles help instill in us an elevated moral sensibility that truly reflects Jehovah’s marvelous qualities.​—Psalm 19:7-11. [reference reading/excerpted: w06 4/1 p.31

    An Elevated Mind Imitates: YAHWEH/Jehovah = Elevated Morality/Personality/Marvelous REALity…!!!

    TRUE & JUST:)
