    Guard what is laid up in trust with you.—1 Tim. 6:20.


    Jehovah has never taken true worship lightly. As an example,under the Mosaic Law, the Israelites
    experienced severe consequences when they veered from their worship of Jehovah. (Josh.23:12, 13)
    In the first century
    C.E., Christ’s followers needed to put up a vigorous fight to keep true worship free of corrupt
    teachings and attitudes.(2 John 7-11; Rev. 2:14-16)

    Today,
    true Christians continue to take their worship seriously. Being
    serious does not mean that we cannot have a relaxing and enjoyable time with people.

    Jesus
    set the perfect example of taking time not only to teach but also to relax and develop meaningful
    relationships with others.(Luke 5:27-29; John 12:1, 2) Being serious also does not mean that we should always have an appearance of severity. Had Jesus had astern, overly serious nature, people
    certainly would not have been drawn to him.
