I grew up hearing that over and over. I used to think about those bumper stickers that say I would rather be golfing or fishing. JW's should have bumper stickers that say I would rather be going door to door.
Once I got old enough to understand it, I used to beat myself up all the time because some of the most hellish days of my life have been out in service.
For so many reasons even more then I will list!
First: being smashed into a car that should truly only hold four people but there are five if not six people in the car and I was always stuck in the middle of the back seat between two of the heavy sets feeling like I could not breath for hours on end.
Second: I was in a car with people who truly hated me and made no qualms of letting me know that they hated me.
Third: I was going to strangers doors uninvited and bugging the hell of people who did not want me there, trying to tell them that the religion and beliefs that they hold dear are wrong and that soon God is going to kill them unless they repent of their sins and become Jehovah's Witnesses.
Yep no one has ever had a bad day doing Jehovah's work of field service!
