He has delegated some authority to us, a faithful slave class. We, in turn, appoint overseers in the Christian congregation.
Hence, we are "faithful," never betraying or abandoning Jehovah, Jesus, Bible truths, or God's people. Being "discreet," we show good judgement in directing the all-important work of preaching the "good news of the kingdom" and making "disciples of people of all the nations." "At the proper time," we obediently distribute spiritual food that is wholesome and nourishing.
How can you show that you appreciate God's guidance? The apostle Paul said: "Be obedient to us who are taking the lead among you and be submissive."
How, then, do you react when you receive divine direction? Do you try to apply it "right afterward"? Or do you continue doing things just as you have been accustomed to doing them? Are you familiar with up-to-date directions, such as those regarding conducting home Bible studies, preaching to foreign speaking people, regularly sharing in family worship, cooperating with Hospital Liaison Committees, and conducting yourselves
properly at conventions? You also show your appreciation for God's guidance by accepting counsel.
When faced with far-reaching decisions, you do not trust in your own wisdom but look to Jehovah and us for guidance.
