    Why Important: When sharing in the

    house-to-house ministry, we often find that

    many people are not at home. However, we

    may come in contact with them when using

    public transportation, when waiting in a doctor’s

    office, when taking a break at work or at

    school, and so forth. It is Jehovah’s will that

    everyone has an opportunity to hear the Kingdom

    message. (1 Tim. 2:3, 4) Often, in order

    to give a witness, we must take the initiative to

    start a conversation.

    Howto Do It:

    ˙ Be selective. Does the person seem friendly

    and willing to talk? Do the circumstances

    allow for relaxed conversation?

    Some publishers first make eye contact

    with the person and then smile. If the person

    smiles back, they try to start a conversation.

    ˙ Say a brief, silent prayer if you lack the

    courage to speak.—Neh. 2:4; Acts 4:29.

    ˙ Start with a simple comment, perhaps a

    greeting. Jesus did not begin his conversation

    with the Samaritanwoman by talking

    about the Kingdom. (John 4:7) Sometimes

    a conversation can be initiated by

    giving commendation: “Your children are

    sowell-behaved!” Asking a question is another

    possible conversation starter: “Did

    you see that news report last night?”

    ˙ Once the conversation has started, look

    for an opportunity to introduce the

    good news, but do not be in a hurry. Allow

    the conversation to develop naturally.

    Perhaps you can make a statement

    that arouses the person’s curiosity and

    prompts an inquiry. For example, if the

    conversation is about family matters, you

    might say, “I found some reliable advice

    on raising children.” If you are discussing

    a news item, you could say, “I recently

    enjoyed reading some good news for a

    change.” Do not be discouraged if the

    conversation ends before you can give a


    ˙ Carry tracts or other literature that you can

    give to someone who shows interest.

    Try This During theMonth:

    ˙ Each week try to start at least one conversation

    with the goal of witnessing informally.

    Questions and answers.

    Song 65 and Prayer

    1 How often do you look into a mirror?

    Most of us do so daily because this helps us

    see aspects of our physical appearance that

    need attention. The Bible has been likened

    to a mirror. Reading God’s Word enables us

    to see our inner self, the person whom Jehovah

    sees. (1 Sam. 16:7; Jas. 1:22-24) God’s

    Word can “discern thoughts and intentions

    of the heart.” (Heb. 4:12) How can reading

    and meditating on the Bible every day help

    1. How is the Bible like a mirror?

    us to see areas that we should strengthen in

    order to be more successful evangelizers?

    —Ps. 1:1-3.

    2 Use the Bible as a Mirror: Bible accounts

    of faithful servants of Jehovah teach us what

    qualities are beautiful to him. For example,

    David demonstrated zeal for God’s name.

    (1 Sam. 17:45, 46) Isaiah courageously volunteered

    to preach in difficult territory. (Isa.

    6:8, 9) Jesus’ deep love for his heavenly Father

    caused him to view the ministry as a

    source of refreshment and satisfaction rather

    than an unpleasant burden. (John 4:34)

    First-century Christians preached with zeal,

    relied on Jehovah, and were determined not

    to give up. (Acts 5:41, 42; 2 Cor. 4:1; 2 Tim.

    4:17) Meditating on such examples helps us

    to look at ourselves with the objective of improving

    the quality of our sacred service.

    3 Act to Correct Defects: Of course, it does

    us no good to look in a mirror and then ignore

    a defect. We can ask Jehovah to help

    us see ourselves objectively and then to help

    us make needed adjustments. (Ps. 139:23,

    24; Luke 11:13) Because the time left is reduced

    and lives are involved, we must not

    procrastinate about making necessary changes.—

    1 Cor. 7:29; 1 Tim. 4:16.

    4 A person’s inner self—what Jehovah takes

    note of—is far more important than his outward

    appearance. (1 Pet. 3:3, 4) What happens

    to the man who peers into God’s Word

    and then acts on what he discovers? He “has

    become, not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of

    the work; and he will be happy in what he

    does.” (Jas. 1:25) Yes, we will be happy and effective

    ministers because we “reflect like mirrors

    the glory of Jehovah.”—2 Cor. 3:18.

    2. How can the Bible help us to make a selfexamination?

    3. Why should we not procrastinate in making

    needed adjustments?

    4. What happens to the man who peers into God’s

    Word and acts on what he discovers?

    HowDo I Appear to Jehovah?


    1 It was the mid-seventh century B.C.E., and

    Baal worship was being openly practiced in Judah.

    Bad King Amon had recently been murdered,

    and now young King Josiah was reigning.

    (2 Chron. 33:21–34:1) During that time,

    Jehovah raised up Zephaniah to declare His

    judgment message. Although Zephaniah may

    have been a member of Judah’s royal house,

    he did not water down Jehovah’s message of

    1. In what setting did Zephaniah serve as a prophet,

    and how is he a good example for us today?

    condemnation to Judah’s leadership. (Zeph.

    1:1; 3:1-4) Similarly, we strive to imitate Zephaniah’s

    courage and avoid allowing family ties

    to impact our worship of Jehovah in a negative

    way. (Matt. 10:34-37) What message did

    Zephaniah declare, and with what results?

    2 Seek Jehovah: Only Jehovah can save individuals

    in the day of his anger. Thus, Zephaniah

    urged the people of Judah to seek Jehovah,

    seek righteousness, and seek meekness

    while time still remained. (Zeph. 2:2, 3) The

    same is true in our day. Like Zephaniah, we

    encourage others to seek Jehovah, but we too

    must act, being determined never to “turn

    away from following Jehovah.” (Zeph. 1:6)

    Rather, we seek Jehovah by carefully studying

    his Word and by praying for his guidance.We

    seek righteousness by living a morally clean

    life. We seek meekness by cultivating a submissive

    attitude and by readily responding to

    direction from Jehovah’s organization.

    3 Positive Results: Zephaniah’s judgment

    message struck a responsive chord with at

    least some in Judah but likely most notably

    with young Josiah, who started to search for

    Jehovah while he was still a boy. Josiah later

    carried out a vigorous campaign against idolatry

    in the land. (2 Chron. 34:2-5) Today, although

    some Kingdom seed falls alongside

    the road, on rocky ground, or among the

    thorns, some also falls on the fine soil and

    yields fruit. (Matt. 13:18-23) We are confident

    that Jehovah will continue to bless our efforts

    as we stay busy spreading Kingdom seed.—Ps.


    4 Some in Judah felt that Jehovah would

    never act. However, Jehovah assured all that

    his great day was near. (Zeph. 1:12, 14) Salvation

    would come only to those who took refuge

    in him. (Zeph. 3:12, 17) As we ‘keep ourselves

    in expectation of Jehovah,’ may we find

    delight in serving unitedly with fellow worshippers

    of our great God!—Zeph. 3:8, 9.

    2. What action must we take to be concealed in the

    day of Jehovah’s anger?

    3. Why should we maintain a positive attitude in the

    Where CanWe Find Answers to Life’s

    Big Questions?

    Hand the tract to the householder so that

    he can see the title and say: “Hello. We are

    sharing in a worldwide campaign to distribute

    this important message. This is your copy.”

    If you are leaving the tract at not-at-homes,

    place it out of sight and avoid folding it unnecessarily.

    If the householder expresses interest or desires

    to talk, you might ask his opinion on the

    multiple-choice question on the front. Open

    the tract, and show him what Psalm 119:144,

    160 says. Explain that the tract contains information

    about a Web site that can help him

    find satisfying answers in the Bible. Perhaps

    you can show him a sample by playing the

    video Why Study the Bible? Before you leave,

    point out the three questions on the back
