1. Aw wi go gɛt sɛns? Aw dat go ɛp wi?

NA Jiova de gi sɛns, ɛn i rɛdi fɔ gi am to ɔda pipul dɛn. Wi rid na Jems 1:​5 se: “If ɛni wan pan una want mɔ sɛns fɔ du ɛnitin, mek i aks Gɔd, Gɔd go gi am, bikɔs Gɔd de gi mɔtalman plɛnti tin dɛn ɛn i gladi fɔ du dat.” Wan we fɔ gɛt sɛns na fɔ gri mek Gɔd kɔrɛkt wi.

2. Aw wi go lan fɔ lɛk di we aw Gɔd de kɔrɛkt wi?

2 Di we aw dɛn mɛn wi ɔ bikɔs wi nɔ pafɛkt kin mek i nɔ izi fɔ mek wi gri fɔ mek dɛn kɔrɛkt wi ɔ si am as sɔntin we gud. Bɔt we wi si di bɛnifit dɛn we wi de gɛt we Gɔd kɔrɛkt wi, dat go ɛp wi fɔ ɔndastand di we aw i rili lɛk wi. Prɔvabs 3:​11, 12 tɛl wi se: “Mi pikin, nɔ mek traŋayes we PAPA GƆD [“Jiova,” NW] de kɔrɛkt yu.” Dɔn i tɔk se: “PAPA GƆD [“Jiova,” NW] de kɔrɛkt udat i lɛk.” Wi shɔ se Jiova want wetin gud fɔ wi. (Rid Di Ibru Pipul Dɛn 12:​5-11.) Bikɔs Gɔd sabi wi gud gud wan, na di rayt we i de kɔrɛkt wi ɔltɛm  ɛn na jɔs wetin go ɛp wi. Insay dis atikul, wi go tɔk bɔt 4 we dɛn fɔ kɔrɛkt wisɛf ɛn ɔda pipul dɛn: (1) fɔ tren wisɛf, (2) aw mama ɛn papa fɔ kɔrɛkt dɛn pikin dɛn, (3) di we aw dɛn de kɔrɛkt wi na di kɔngrigeshɔn, (4) sɔntin we at pas di pen we wi kin fil we dɛn kɔrɛkt wi.

We di mama ɛn papa shɔ se di pikin dɔn rili sabi rayd di baysikul, dɛn kin lɛf am fɔ lɛ in wangren rayd. Semweso, we mama ɛn papa dɛn tek tɛm tich ɛn tren dɛn pikin dɛn di we aw Jiova want, dɛn de ɛp dɛn pikin dɛn fɔ tren dɛnsɛf ɛn gɛt sɛns.—Lɛta Fɔ Ɛfisɔs 6:​4.

Bɔt we dɛn bigin “fɔ liv di nyu layf” ɛn tray fɔ falamakata Krays, dɛn kin rili machɔ. (Lɛta Fɔ Ɛfisɔs 4:​23, 24) We wi tren wisɛf, dat de ɛp wi fɔ lan nɔ “fɔ liv lɛkɛ pipul we nɔ no am, wi fɔ lɛf dɛn bad tin we wi want du na di wɔl, ɛn lan fɔ kɔntrol wisɛf, fɔ waka tret, ɛn fɔ waka wit am na dis wɔl.”—Taytɔs 2:​12.

Wi lan na Prɔvabs 24:​16 se: “I lɛk ɔmɔs tɛm pɔsin we de waka tret na PAPA GƆD in yay fɔdɔm i de grap bak.” Wetin go ɛp wi fɔ “grap bak”? Nɔto wi trɛnk go ɛp wi, bɔt na Gɔd in oli spirit.

Bɔt wetin yu go du if i nɔ izi fɔ yu fɔ stɔdi di Baybul ɔ if yu nɔ lɛk fɔ stɔdi atɔl? Lɛ dat nɔ mek yu at pwɛl. If yu alaw Jiova fɔ ɛp yu, i go ɛp yu fɔ mek yu “want fɔ” rid in Wɔd ɔltɛm. (Pita In Fɔs Lɛta 2:​2) Aks Jiova fɔ ɛp yu fɔ mek yu tren yusɛf fɔ spɛn mɔ tɛm fɔ stɔdi di Baybul. Sɔntɛm yu kin yuz smɔl tɛm we yu jɔs stat fɔ stɔdi. Smɔl smɔl, i go bigin izi fɔ yu fɔ stɔdi ɛn yu go de ɛnjɔy am mɔ ɛn mɔ. Yu go lɛk di kwayɛt tɛm we yu kin sidɔm fɔ tek tɛm tink bɔt di valyu tin dɛn we yu dɔn rid na Jiova in Wɔd.—Fɔs Lɛta To Timoti 4:​15.

7 We wi tren wisɛf, dat go ɛp wi fɔ gɛt  gol dɛn we go mek wi du mɔ na Jiova in savis. Fɔ ɛgzampul, wan papa bin notis se i nɔ gɛt bɛtɛ zil igen, so i bin sɛt gol fɔ bi rɛgyula payɔnia. Aw di tren we i bin tren insɛf bin ɛp am? I bin rid atikul dɛn insay wi magazin dɛn bɔt aw pɔsin kin payɔnia ɛn i bin pre bɔt dat.

Afta sɔm tɛm, i bin bi rɛgyula payɔnia.

MƐN YU PIKIN DƐN DI WE AW JIOVA WANT

We dɛn bɔn pikin, i nɔ kin no wetin rayt frɔm wetin rɔng, so dɛn nid fɔ tren am (Luk na paregraf 8)

8-10. Wetin go ɛp mama ɛn papa dɛn fɔ mɛn dɛn pikin dɛn di we we dɛn go sav Jiova? Gi wan ɛgzampul.

8 Jiova dɔn gi mama ɛn papa dɛn di wok fɔ mɛn dɛn pikin dɛn ɛn “gi dɛn Kristiɛn trenin.” (Lɛta Fɔ Ɛfisɔs 6:​4) Dis nɔ rili izi tide. (Sɛkɛn Lɛta To Timoti 3:​1-5) We dɛn bɔn pikin dɛn, di pikin dɛn nɔ kin no wetin rayt frɔm wetin rɔng, ɛn dɛn kɔnshɛns nɔ tren. So dɛn nid fɔ tich dɛn fɔ mek dɛn go tren dɛn kɔnshɛns. (Lɛta Fɔ Rom 2:​14, 15) Wan masta sabi bukman  we stɔdi di Baybul bin ɛksplen se we dɛn translet di Grik wɔd fɔ “trenin” ɔ kɔrɛkt, i kin min bak “we pikin de gro,” ɔ fɔ mɛn pikin fɔ bi gud pɔsin we i big.

9 We mama ɛn papa dɛn kin sho lɔv to dɛn pikin dɛn we dɛn de tren dɛn, di pikin dɛn kin fil sef. Dɛn kin lan se nɔto ɔltin dɛn gɛt fridɔm fɔ du ɛn dɛn go bɛnifit ɔ sɔfa fɔ ɛnitin we dɛn du. So i rili impɔtant fɔ lɛ mama ɛn papa dɛn we na Kristian abop pan Jiova fɔ gi dɛn di sɛns we dɛn nid fɔ mɛn dɛn pikin dɛn. Di we aw pɔsin kin mɛn in pikin na wan say kin difrɛn frɔm di we aw pipul dɛn kin mɛn dɛn pikin dɛn na ɔda say dɛn, ɛn dɛn we ya aw dɛn kin mɛn dɛn pikin dɛn kin chenj as tɛm de go. Bɔt mama ɛn papa dɛn we de lisin to Gɔd nɔ kin wɔri bɔt wetin dɛn fɔ du ɔ abop pan mɔtalman sɛns.

10 Wi kin lan frɔm Noa in ɛgzampul. We Jiova bin tɛl Noa fɔ bil di ak, i nɔ bin no aw fɔ bil am. I bin gɛt fɔ abop pan Jiova, ɛn wi rid se “Noa du ɔl wetin PAPA GƆD tɛl am fɔ du.” (Jɛnɛsis 6:​22) Wetin bin apin? Di ak bin mek Noa ɛn in famili sev! Noa bin ebul fɔ tren in pikin dɛn fɔ kɔmɔt fayn. Wetin bin mek i ebul? Na bikɔs i bin abop pan di sɛns we Gɔd de gi. Noa bin tich in pikin dɛn gud gud wan ɛn in na bin gud ɛgzampul fɔ dɛn. Dis na tin we nɔ bin izi fɔ Noa bikɔs wikɛd pipul dɛn bin bɔku dɛn tɛm dɛn de bifo di Ebi Ebi Ren kam.—Jɛnɛsis 6:​5.

11. Wetin mek mama ɛn papa dɛn fɔ wok tranga wan fɔ tren dɛn pikin dɛn?

11 If yu na pɔsin we gɛt pikin, aw yu go ‘du ɔl wetin Jiova tɛl yu fɔ du’? Lisin to Jiova. Alaw am fɔ mek i ɛp yu fɔ mɛn yu pikin dɛn. Yuz di advays dɛn we de na in Wɔd ɛn di advays dɛn we in ɔganayzeshɔn de gi. Leta, yu pikin dɛn go tɛl yu tɛnki fɔ we yu du dat! Wan brɔda bin rayt se: “A rili gladi fɔ di we aw mi mama ɛn papa dɛn mɛn mi. Dɛn du ɔl wetin dɛn ebul fɔ tich mi di we we i go tɔch mi at.” Dis brɔda se na in mama ɛn papa ɛp am fɔ kam nia Jiova. Na tru se, pan ɔl we mama ɛn papa dɛn kin du ɔl wetin dɛn ebul fɔ tich dɛn pikin, sɔntɛnde, di pikin kin stil lɛf fɔ sav Jiova. Bɔt mama ɛn papa dɛn we dɔn tray fɔ du dɛn bɛst kin gɛt gud kɔnshɛns ɛn dɛn kin abop se wande wande di pikin go kam bak to Jiova.

12, 13. (a) We pikin disfɛloship, aw mama ɛn papa dɛn go sho se dɛn de obe Gɔd? (b) Aw wan famili bin bɛnifit we di mama ɛn papa bin obe Jiova?

12 Fɔ sɔm mama ɛn papa dɛn, wan tin we nɔ kin rili izi fɔ dɛn, na we dɛn disfɛloship wan pan dɛn pikin dɛn. Dis kin tɛst di we aw dɛn de obe Jiova. Wan sista we in gyalpikin bin lɛf os afta i disfɛloship bin tɔk se: “A kin luk fɔ af-af we dɛn insay wi buk ɛn magazin dɛn we go mek a spɛn tɛm wit mi gyalpikin ɛn mi granpikin.” Bɔt dis sista in man bin ɛp am fɔ si se i nɔ gɛt di wok igen fɔ tren dɛn gyalpikin ɛn dɛn nid fɔ kɔntinyu fɔ de biɛn Jiova.

13 Leta, dɛn gyalpikin bin kam bak to Jiova. In mama bin tɔk se: “Naw mi gyalpikin de kɔl mi ɛn tɛks mi ɛvride! Ɛn i rili rɛspɛkt mi ɛn mi man bikɔs i no se wi bin obe Gɔd. Wi rili gɛt tayt padi biznɛs.” If yu bɔypikin ɔ gyalpikin  disfɛloship, yu tink se yu go “trɔs PAPA GƆD [“Jiova,” NW] wit ɔl yu at”? Yu go sho se yu “nɔ abop pan yu yon sɛns”? (Prɔvabs 3:​5, 6) Mɛmba se, di tren we Jiova de tren wi de sho se i gɛt sɛns ɛn i rili lɛk wi. Nɔ ɛva fɔgɛt se, Jiova mek in Pikin day fɔ ɔlman ivin fɔ yu bɔypikin ɔ yu gyalpikin. Gɔd want ɔlman fɔ gɛt layf we go de sote go. (Rid Pita in Sɛkɔn Lɛta 3:​9, NW.) So mama ɛn papa dɛn, una kɔntinyu fɔ abop se di we aw Jiova de kɔrɛkt ɛn gayd una, na fɔ una yon gud ilɛksɛf i nɔ izi fɔ obe. Lisin to di we aw Gɔd de kɔrɛkt yu ɛn nɔ dinay am.

(Lyuk 12:​42, NW) Di “savant we fetful ɛn we gɛt sɛns” de gi wi fayn fayn advays dɛn ɔ dɛn de kɔrɛkt wi di rayt we. Sɔntɛm yu go tink bɔt wan tɔk we yu bin dɔn yɛri ɔ wan atikul we yu rid insay wi magazin dɛn we bin ɛp yu fɔ chenj di we aw yu de tink ɔ du tin.

Di Baybul se dɛn brɔda dɛn ya na ‘man dɛn we tan lɛk gift.’ (Lɛta fɔ Ɛfisɔs 4:​8, NW, 11-13) Aw wi go bɛnifit frɔm di wok we di ɛlda dɛn de du? Wi kin falamakata dɛn fet ɛn dɛn gud ɛgzampul, dɔn wi kin fala di advays dɛn we dɛn kin gi wi frɔm di Baybul. (Rid Di Ibru Pipul Dɛn 13:​7, 17.)
