Yes, Denis - fine counsel:


(Acts 17:11) Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thes·sa·lo·ni′ca, for they accepted the word with the greatest eagerness of mind, carefully examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.


As our governing body encourages us to do in our book on Acts - for example:


wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1102009061


Excerpt:


17. Why is the example of the Beroeans so commendable, and how can we continue to imitate it long after becoming believers?


17 Little did those Beroeans realize that the record of their reaction to the good news would be preserved in God’s Word as a shining example of spiritual noble-mindedness. They did precisely what Paul had hoped they would do and what Jehovah God wanted them to do. Likewise, it is what we encourage people to do—to examine the Bible carefully so that their faith is solidly based on God’s Word. After we become believers, though, does the need to be noble-minded come to an end? On the contrary, it becomes ever more important that we be eager to learn from Jehovah and quick to apply his teachings. In that way, we allow Jehovah to mold us and train us according to his will. (Isa. 64:8) We thus remain useful and fully pleasing to our heavenly Father.


PM me if you wish while there is time (the site may close 2 PM CST one poster thinks).


Mr. Jordan has my e-mail.
