12. (a) Aw bɔku yɔŋ wan dɛn tide fiba Timoti? (b) Us kwɛstyɔn dɛn yɔŋ wan dɛn we na Kristian fɔ tink bɔt?

12 Jɔs lɛk di yɔŋ pipul dɛn we wi dɔn tɔk bɔt, i go bi se yu mama ɛn papa rili lɛk Jiova Gɔd. If na so i bi, yu fiba Timoti. (Rid Sɛkɔn Lɛta To Timoti 3:14-17.) Na yu mama ɛn papa go “dɔn lan” yu bɔt di tru Gɔd ɛn aw fɔ du wetin i want. I go bi se yu mama ɛn papa go dɔn bigin tich yu frɔm we yu smɔl. Dis go dɔn mek yu “gɛt sɛns” ɛn i go “ɛp yu fɔ sev if yu gɛt fet pan Krays Jizɔs” ɛn i go ɛp yu fɔ rɛdi fɔ du Gɔd in wok. Wan impɔtant kwɛstyɔn we yu fɔ aks yusɛf naw na, A valyu wetin a dɔn gɛt?

A de  si am se na big big ɔnɔ a gɛt fɔ no di trut?’

Yu gladi fɔ bi wan pan Jiova in fetful witnɛs dɛn? (Luk na paregraf 9, 10, 12)

13, 14. Wetin bɔku yɔŋ pipul dɛn we na Kristian kin want fɔ du? Wetin mek dis nɔ mek sɛns? Gi wan ɛgzampul.

13 Sɔm yɔŋ wan dɛn we dɛn mama ɛn papa na Kristian nɔ kin no aw i fayn fɔ de na di trut ɛn dɛn nɔ kin no di trɔbul dɛn we de na di wɔl. So sɔm dɛn kin want fɔ no aw Setan in wɔl tan lɛk.

Semweso, no nid nɔ de fɔ lɛ wi go tes di “bad layf” we de na di wɔl jɔs fɔ lɛ wi no di pen we pipul dɛn kin fil.—1 Pit. 4:4.

14 Wan bɔbɔ we nem Jɛna we de na Esia, bin gro ɔp na Kristian famili. Ɛn i bin baptayz we i ol 12 ia. Bɔt as i de big, i bigin lɛk di wɔl.

We i kam bak na di trut, i tɔk se: “A gɛt bɔku prɔblɛm dɛn we de stil mit mi, bɔt di blɛsin dɛn we Jiova de gi mi bɔku pas dɛn fa fawe.”

15. Wetin yɔŋ pipul dɛn we dɛn mama ɛn papa nɔ de na di trut fɔ tink bɔt?

15 Ɔda yɔŋ pipul dɛn de na di kɔngrigeshɔn we dɛn mama ɛn papa nɔ de na di trut. If yu na wan pan dɛn, tink bɔt di blɛsin dɛn we yu de ɛnjɔy naw we yu dɔn no di Pɔsin we mek ɔltin ɛn yu de wɔship am!

(Rid Fɔs Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 2:12.) Jɛna se: “Mi ia kin rayz we a kin tink bɔt dis. Udat na mi fɔ lɛ Jiova we mek di wan ol wɔl, sabi mi?” (Sam 8:4) Wan sista we kɔmɔt na di sem eria tɔk se: “Skulpikin dɛn kin gladi we dɛn ticha dɛn mɛmba dɛn, no dɛn nem, ɛn no ɔda tin dɛn bɔt dɛn. So na big big ɔnɔ fɔ mek Jiova we na di Bɛst Ticha, no mi!”

We yu du dat, yusɛf go bi wan pan Jiova in fetful savant dɛn. Nɔ tan lɛk dɛn yɔŋ pipul dɛn na di wɔl we de west dɛn layf ɛn we nɔ gɛt op fɔ tumara bambay.—2 Kɔr. 4:3, 4.

17-19. Wetin go ɛp yu fɔ difrɛn frɔm di pipul dɛn na di wɔl?

17 Nɔto ɔltɛm i kin izi fɔ lɛ wi difrɛn frɔm di pipul dɛn na di wɔl. Bɔt we yu wach, yu go si se i rili mek sɛns fɔ lɛ wi difrɛn frɔm pipul dɛn na di wɔl. Fɔ ɔndastand dis mɔ, lɛ wi tink bɔt pɔsin we de rɔn na Olimpik. Fɔ mek pɔsin rɔn na Olimpik, i fɔ difrɛn frɔm in kɔmpin dɛn.

18 Bɔku pipul dɛn nɔ kin tink bɔt di prɔblɛm dɛn we dɛn go gɛt we dɛn put an pan bad tin, bɔt Jiova in pipul dɛn kin tink bɔt dat. If yu difrɛn frɔm di pipul dɛn na di wɔl ɛn nɔ miks pan di bad tin dɛn we dɛn de du, dat min se yu dɔn “ol di rial layf wit tu an.” (1 Tim. 6:19) Da sista we wi bin tɔk bɔt, tɔk bak se: “If yu tinap tranga wan fɔ wetin yu biliv, yu go rili gladi. I go sho se yu nɔ de du wetin Setan want. Apat frɔm dat, Jiova de gladi fɔ yu ɛn i go tan lɛk se i de smayl to yu! Na da tɛm de yu go fil gud we yu difrɛn!”

19 Yu layf nɔ go gɛt wan minin if yu jɔs de pe atɛnshɔn pan wetin yu go gɛt naw. (Ɛkli. 9:2, 10) If yu na yɔŋ pɔsin, ɛn yu de tink gud wan bɔt di rizin we mek yu gɛt layf ɛn di chans we yu gɛt fɔ liv sote go, yu go si se i nɔ mek sɛns fɔ “waka lɛk aw di pipul dɛn na di wɔl . . . , de waka.” Bifo dat, yu go want fɔ liv yu layf di rayt we.—Ɛfi. 4:17; Mal. 3:18.

20, 21. If wi disayd fɔ du di rayt tin, us chans wi go gɛt? Wetin fɔs wi fɔ du?

20 If wi disayd fɔ du di rayt tin, wi go ɛnjɔy wi layf naw ɛn wi go gɛt di chans fɔ de na “di wɔl” sote go. Jiova dɔn kip bɔku bɔku blɛsin dɛn fɔ wi we wi nɔ go ivin ebul fɔ tink bɔt.

If wi fetful to am naw, wi go gɛt bɔku bɔku blɛsin!

21 Gɔd dɔn gi wi bɔku bɔku tin. Wi dɔn no di tru tin dɛn we de na di Baybul, wi no di tru bɔt Jiova ɛn di tin dɛn we i want fɔ du. Na big big ɔnɔ wi gɛt fɔ lɛ dɛn kɔl wi Jiova Witnɛs ɛn fɔ lɛ wi tɔk bɔt Jiova in nem. Ɛn Gɔd dɔn prɔmis wi se i go ɛp wi. (Sam 118:7) So lɛ wi ɔl, ilɛksɛf wi yɔŋ ɔ ol, sho se wi valyu di tin dɛn we wi dɔn gɛt ɛn du wetin go mek Jiova gɛt “di prez sote go.”—Rom 11:33-36; Sam 33:12.
