"Abundant peace belongs to those loving your law, and for them there is no stumbling block" (Psalm 119:165)
The conduct of others never creates an excuse for our becoming bitter toward God or for abandoning a faithful course. Enduring even in the face of trials will help us to maintain our integrity. We can also maintain integrity by avoiding a faultfinding, critical spirit. That means, of course, being loyal to Jehovah. He is blessing his people now more than ever. Pure worship has never in all of history been so exalted on earth. (Isaiah 2:2-4) When adjustments are made in explanation of Bible texts or in how things are done, we want to accept them. We are delighted to see evidence that the spiritual light is still increasing. (Proverbs 4:18) If we find it hard to understand a change, we ask Jehovah to help us to comprehend the point. Meanwhile, we endure in an obedient course, keeping our integrity.
