    Safeguard your heart—Prov. 4:23.


    Not all unbelieving spouses,
    children, parents, or other relatives embrace true worship, even
    after years of faithful conduct and tactful witnessing on the part of the believer. Some remain indifferent
    or become unrelenting opposers.(Matt. 10:35-37) However, displaying godly traits can have
    a very good effect. A former unbelieving husband states: “When the believing mate starts to let
    those lovely qualities shine, you do not know what is going on in the unbeliever’s mind and heart.
    So don’t ever give up on your unbelieving mate.â€

    Even if a family member remains an unbeliever,
    happiness is possible for the believer.
    Although her husband has
    not responded to the Kingdom message after 21 years of effort on her part, one sister says:
    “Immersing myself in spiritual activities—
    personal study, meeting attendance, the field ministry, and helping others in the congregation—
    has drawn me closer to Jehovah and has safeguarded my heart.â€

    I'm just writing from my own experience here - there are no other Witnesses in my family. I think it's important to get the balance right between spiritual activities and family responsibilities. I had to learn how to do that in a reasonable and practical manner.
