"Whether you are eating or drinking or doing anything else, do all things for God's glory."
(1 Corinthians 10:31)

As Christians, we enjoy life, and we wish to glorify God in everything we do. When we faithfully apply ourselves to preaching the Kingdom good news and teaching others to observe all the things that Jesus commanded, we will find many rewarding avenues of service open to us. (Matthew 24:14; 28:19, 20) Besides working with the local congregation, we may have opportunities to serve where there is greater need, whether in another territory, language, or country. Which avenue of service should you pursue? As a dedicated servant of Jehovah, always look to him and to his organization for direction. His "good spirit" will help you make the right decision. (Nehemiah 9:20) One assignment often leads to another, and the experience and skills acquired in one form of service may be useful in another assignment later.
(Watchtower issue: 10/01/07, 2:11, 12)
