    Make your vows to Jehovah your God and pay them.


    Ps. 76:11.

    How can we prove true to our dedication vow? Our stand during tests both large and small should show that we take seriously our pledge to praise Jehovah “day after day.”


    (Ps. 61:8)

    For example, when someone on the job or at school flirts with us, do we see this as an opportunity to “take pleasure in [Jehovah’s] ways” by rejecting such advances? (Prov. 23:26) If we live in a divided household, do we ask Jehovah for his help to maintain the Christian personality even when no one else around us is making such an effort?


    Do we daily approach our loving heavenly Father in prayer, thanking him for bringing us under his rulership and for loving us? Are we making time to read the Bible daily?

    Did we not, in effect, promise that we would do such things? It is a matter of obedience. Our full share in worship reveals that we love Jehovah and are truly dedicated to him. Our worship is a way of life, not a mere formality.

    Reminds me of Luke 16:10 - "He that is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much."

    I like the last sentence too: "Our worship is a way of life, not a mere formality." We have to strive to live our daily lives in a way that will bring honour to Jehovah's name. Our worship should not be something that is a ritual, or routine.
