    Let each one examine his own actions, . . .
    and not in comparison with the other person.


    Gal. 6:4.

    The Creator envisioned that perfect humans would cooperate with him to accomplish his purposes. Despite mankind’s current imperfect state, faithful people can still work with Jehovah each day. For example, we become “God’s fellow workers” by preaching the good news of his Kingdom and making disciples. (1 Cor. 3:5-9)

    Just think what a privilege we have to be counted worthy of cooperating with the almighty Creator of the universe in a work that he considers important! Yet, preaching and making disciples are not the only ways that we work with Jehovah. Other ways we can do so are by assisting our family and fellow worshippers, by being hospitable, by volunteering for theocratic projects, and by expanding our sacred service.

    (Col. 3:23)

    However, do not compare what you can do for Jehovah with what others can do. Remember that age, health, circumstances, and abilities vary from one person to another.

    Each of us has different strengths and knowledge bases, so we can assist each other in various ways. Everyone's situation is different, so some will be able to do more while others are limited in what they can do.

    I also notice that the elderly ones sometimes compare what they do now with what they were able to do when they were younger. The mind tells the body to "get up and go do" but the body may not have the physical strength to keep up the same pace as it used to.
