Awake! February“We are visiting briefly to show our neighbors the current issue of Awake! It considers the answer to an intriguing question. [Show the cover.] I would like to get your opinion on this example mentioned in the magazine. [Read Proverbs 29:11.] Do you think this Bible principle is relevant today? [Allow for response.] This magazine discusses four Bible principles and explains how we can benefit from applying them.”
