“Amadodana ayilifa elivela kuJehova.”​—IHubo 127:3

Ukuzalwa komntwana kungabathokozisa kuphinde kubatshayise ngamakhanda abazali. Njengoba lisanda kuba ngabazali, kungalimangalisa ukuthi umntwana uzathatha isikhathi senu lamandla enu onke. Ukungabuquthi ubuthongo linakekela umntwana kungalidonsisa nzima emtshadweni wenu. Lobabili kuzamele lintshintshe ukuze linakekele umntanenu njalo lilondoloze umtshado wenu. Iseluleko esiseBhayibhilini singalinceda njani ukuthi libunqobe ubunzima lobu?

Makhosikazi jabulani nxa omkenu belincedisa. Amazwi enu okubonga ‘angelapha.’ (IZaga 12:18) Madoda, tshelani amakhosikazi enu ukuthi liyawathanda lokuthi liyawaqakathekisa kakhulu. Bancomeni ngomsebenzi omuhle abawenzayo wokunakekela imuli.​—IZaga 31:10, 28.

“Akulamuntu okumele azidingele okuhle, kodwa okuhle kwabanye.” (1 KwabaseKhorinte 10:24) Menzele okuhle umkakho ngaso sonke isikhathi. Zinikeni isikhathi sokuxoxa, sokhuthazana lesokulalelana. Ungagxili kulokho okufunwa nguwe kuphela ezindabeni zemacansini kodwa woba lendaba lalokho okusuthisa omunye wakho. IBhayibhili lithi: “Lingancitshani ngaphandle kokuba kungokuvumelana.” (1 KwabaseKhorinte 7:3-5) Ngakho-ke khululekani ukuxoxa ngalolu daba. Ukubekezela lokuzwisisa kuzaqinisa uthando lwenu.

Usana luyenelisa futhi ukunanzelela ilizwi lomzali futhi lutshengise imizwa yalo lanxa lusesiswini. Lubaleleni amabhuku. Lanxa lungazwisisi lokho eliyabe likubala, kuzalunceda ukuthi luthande ukubala nxa selukhulile.

Kakulasidingo sokuthi usana luqale lukhule ukuze lufundiswe ngoNkulunkulu, ngakho khulekani kuJehova lusizwa. (UDutheronomi 11:19) Khulumani ngezinto uNkulunkulu azidalileyo nxa lidlala losana lwenu.
