    Happy is the man that has not walked in the counsel of the wicked ones.—Ps. 1:1.



    Think about the first time you had a meaningful discussion with one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. What
    do you remember about it? Many would reply, ‘I was impressed by the fact that the Witness used the
    Bible to answer all my questions.’How delighted we were to discover God’s purpose for the earth,
    what happens when we die, and what the future holds for our dead loved ones!

    As we studied further,
    however, we realized that the Bible does much more than answer our questions about life,
    death, and the future.We came to appreciate that the Bible is the most practical book in the world.
    Its counsel is timeless, and those who carefully follow it will lead successful and happy lives. (Ps. 1:1-3)
    Genuine Christians have always
    accepted the Bible,
    “not as the word of men, but, just as it
    truthfully is, as the word of God.â€

    —1 Thess. 2:13.

    One of the scriptures that has assisted me from a practical point of view is the point mentioned at Proverbs 19:11 - "The insight of a man certainly slows down his anger, and it is beauty on his part to pass over transgression."

    I've got the role of problem solver and trouble shooter in my family, so I've really appreciated the wisdom behind this scripture.
