Actually, I did not read the daily text everyday, I would say once a while.
Did you read the Daily Text everyday?
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.
Even when I did read the text, I rarely remembered it five minutes later.
I was pretty good at it.........
Kept one in the car and before work I'd read it and sip my coffee then Laugh and say............
Yep I'll work on that!!!!
The watchtower ain't dumb you know
Just another way to keep witless noses stuck in the bs.
Every day it is something!
preparation for service
preparation for meetings
getting ready for assemblies/clothes/shoes/accommadation
d2d advertising conventions
arranging days off work for conventions
travelling to/attending days of "talks"
organizing assembly notes to answer questions at first meeting after
getting the "releases" read d2d
"encouraging" & convincing unbelieving relatives that assembly was best ever
visiting the sick jw's/placing latest mags
prepare for rv's & studies
fill out time slip again & again & again
.every day your nose is in it .......how could we not be brain washed!
Oh and the question ......... no never did read the "daily" text with any regularity!
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.
