Did you read the Daily Text everyday?

    Actually, I did not read the daily text everyday, I would say once a while.

  • NewChapter

    Every year I would resolve to read the text every day. Every year I didn't. But I would fold my pages as though I did. LOL

    I also noticed that those that did read the text everyday would set their mouths in this hard line about it. Like they KNEW they were reading the text everyday but nobody else was. They got that stern schoolteacher look about them. The best JW's were always the unhappiest and crankiest.

    I did. Faithfully, and dutifully, every morning.

    And, along with others, would say appreciatively, "Lovely Day Text today."

    "Yes, wasn't it?"

    "Lovely," we would all murmur.

    Since the whole thing fell apart before my eyes, I don't. Absolutely do not. Haven't opened the book since that day near the end of February, when I saw the whole thing for the nasty sham and scam it is.

    The good old Daily Text. A brief scripture quote followed by a long paragraph of WT interpretation. Great way to start the day in the correct frame of mind.

  • NewChapter

    Even when I did read the text, I rarely remembered it five minutes later.

    Every single day.

    Kept it in the Bidet opposite the loo so there was always plenty of opportunities and no excuses not to!

    No...but I usually got caught up by the end of each month.

    I read it at conventions when it was part of the program, and if it was handled in meeting for field service. Otherwise I did not touch the book.
