My observations have been that whenever there is a situation where most JW's would have to do more than they really want to,
they have a mental escape hatch. They tell themselves that Jehovah will take care of all things,
therefore persons in need can trust in and wait on Jehovah. So now the JW can offer words
of encouragement, maybe a card or phone call, and feel they have exercised christian love to the
one in need. They talk a good talk, but when it comes right down to it, instead of practicing
what they preach, most quickly head for the escape hatch.
