1 John 4:9.
+ 9 By this the love of God was revealed in our case, that God sent his only-begotten Son+ into the world so that we might gain life through him.+ 10 The love is in this respect, not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice*+ for our sins.+
11 Beloved ones, if this is how God loved us, then we are also under obligation to love one another.+ 12 No one has seen God at any time.+ If we continue loving one another, God remains in us and his love is made perfect in us.

Why Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Go From Door to Door?

Jesus told his followers to “make disciples of people of all the nations.”(Matthew 28:19, 20) When he sent out his early disciples, Jesus directed them to go to the homes of the people.(Matthew 10:7, 11-13)
After Jesus’ death, first-century Christians continued to spread their message both “publicly and from house to house.”(Acts 5:42; 20:20)
We follow the example of those early Christians and find that the door-to-door ministry is a good way to reach people.

Matthew 28:19, 20 http://www.jw.org/en/
19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations,+ baptizing them+ in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit,
20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.+ And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.”*+

Acts 5:42 42 And every day in the temple and from house to house+ they continued without letup teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus.+

Acts 20:20 20 while I did not hold back from telling you any of the things that were profitable* nor from teaching you publicly+ and from house to house.+

2 Corinthians 12:7 http://www.jw.org/en/
just because of receiving such extraordinary revelations. To keep me from becoming overly exalted, I was given a thorn in the flesh,+ an angel of Satan, to keep slapping* me, so that I might not be overly exalted. 8 Three times I begged the Lord about this that it would depart from me.

9 But he said to me:“My undeserved kindness is sufficient for you, for my power is being made perfect in weakness.”+ Most gladly, then, I will boast about my weaknesses, in order that the power of the Christ may remain over me like a tent. 10 So I take pleasure in weaknesses, in insults, in times of need, in persecutions and difficulties, for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am powerful.+

Money Problems and Debt—Can the Bible Help?
The Bible’s answer

Yes. The following four Bible principles can help you with money problems and debt:

1. Plan your spending.“The plans of the diligent one surely make for advantage, but everyone that is hasty surely heads for want.”(Proverbs 21:5) Don’t rush to buy something just because it’s on sale. Make a financial plan—a budget—and stick to it.

2. Avoid unnecessary debt.“The borrower is servant to the man doing the lending.”(Proverbs 22:7) If you are already in debt and can’t meet your obligations, try to negotiate new payment plans with your creditors. Be persistent. Use the Bible’s advice to one who unwisely guaranteed a loan and thus took on responsibility for the debt:“Humble yourself, and pester your neighbor. Don’t let your eyes rest or your eyelids close.”(Proverbs 6:1-5, God’s Word Bible) Even if your first request isn’t successful, keep on asking for an adjustment.

3. Keep money in its proper place.“Don’t be selfish and eager to get rich—you will end up worse off than you can imagine.”(Proverbs 28:22, Contemporary English Version) Envy and greed not only can lead to financial ruin but also can crowd out spiritual matters.

4. Be content.“Having sustenance and covering, we shall be content with these things.”(1 Timothy 6:8) Money can’t buy

Matthew 13:36 fine seed-the weeds
Then after dismissing the crowds, he went into the house. His disciples came to him and said:“Explain to us the illustration of the weeds in the field.” 37 In response he said:“The sower of the fine seed is the Son of man; 38 the field is the world.+ As for the fine seed, these are the sons of the Kingdom, but the weeds are the sons of the wicked one,+ 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the Devil. The harvest is a conclusion of a system of things,* and the reapers are angels. 40 Therefore, just as the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be in the conclusion of the system of things.*+ 41 The Son of man will send his angels, and they will collect out from his Kingdom all things that cause stumbling and people who practice lawlessness,

Psalm 103:19
19 Jehovah has firmly established his throne in the heavens;+And his kingship rules over everything.+ 20 Praise Jehovah, all you his angels,+ mighty in power,Who carry out his word,+ obeying his voice.*

2 Kings 19:35 35
On that very night the angel of Jehovah went out and struck down 185,000 men in the camp of the As•syr&#8242;i•ans.+ When people rose up early in the morning, they saw all the dead bodies.+ 36 So King Sen•nach&#8242;er•ib of As•syr&#8242;i•a departed and returned to Nin&#8242;e•veh+ and stayed there.+

Revelation 12:7 7
And war broke out in heaven: Mi&#8242;cha•el*+ and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail,* nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon+ was hurled, the original serpent,+ the one called Devil+ and Satan,+ who is misleading the entire inhabited earth;+ he was hurled down to the earth,+ and his angels were hurled down with him. 10 I heard a loud voice in heaven say:“Now have come to pass the salvation+ and the power and the Kingdom of our God+ and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!+ 11 And they conquered him+ because of the blood of the Lamb+ and because of the word of their witnessing,+ and they did not love their souls*+ even in the face of death. 12 On this account be glad, you heavens and you who reside in them! Woe for the earth and for the sea,+ because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”+

Matthew 25:31 http://www.jw.org/en/
31 “When the Son of man+ comes in his glory, and all the angels with him,+ then he will sit down on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will put the sheep+ on his right hand, but the goats on his left.+

1 Thessalonians 4:13 Archangel http://www.jw.org/en/
Moreover, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant* about those who are sleeping in death,+ so that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope.+
14 For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again,+ so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus.+
15 For this is what we tell you by Jehovah’s* word, that we the living who survive to the presence of the Lord will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep in death;
16 because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a commanding call, with an archangel’s+ voice and with God’s trumpet, and those who are dead in union with Christ will rise first.+

2 Peter 2:1 Noah, a preacher of righteousness,+ safe with seven others
Noah a preacher of righteousness-Sodom & Gomorrah Condemned
However, there also came to be false prophets among the people, as there will also be false teachers among you.+ These will quietly bring in destructive sects, and they will even disown the owner who bought them,+ bringing speedy destruction upon themselves. 2 Furthermore, many will follow their brazen conduct,*+ and because of them the way of the truth will be spoken of abusively.+ 3 Also, they will greedily exploit you with counterfeit words. But their judgment, decided long ago,+ is not moving slowly, and their destruction is not sleeping.+ 4 Certainly God did not refrain from punishing the angels who sinned,+ but threw them into Tar&#8242;ta•rus,*+ putting them in chains* of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment.+ 5 And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world,+ but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness,+ safe with seven others+ when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people.+ 6 And by reducing the cities of Sod&#8242;om and Go•mor&#8242;rah to ashes, he condemned them,+ setting a pattern for ungodly people of things to come.

Matthew 24:14 d .+ 14 And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations,+ and then the end will come.

Matthew 28 :19-20 + 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations,+ baptizing them+ in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.+ And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.”

Matthew 10:34-37 s.+ 34 Do not think I came to bring peace to the earth; I came to bring, not peace, but a sword.+ 35 For I came to cause division, with a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.+ 36 Indeed, a man’s enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever has greater affection for father or mother than for me is not worthy of me; and whoever has greater affection for son or daughter than for me is not worthy of me.

Matthew 5:34.’*+ 34 However, I say to you: Do not swear at all,+ neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by earth, for it is the footstool of his feet;+ nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.+ 36 Do not swear by your head, since you cannot turn one hair white or black. 37 Just let your word ‘Yes’ mean yes, your ‘No,’ no,+ for what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.+

Matthew 6:1“Take care not to practice your righteousness in front of men to be noticed by them;+ otherwise you will have no reward with your Father who is in the heavens. 2 So when you make gifts of mercy,* do not blow a trumpet ahead of you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be glorified by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
