(UmTshumayeli 3:12) UNkulunkulu uthembisa ukuthi labo abazaphila emhlabeni bazakholisa ngoba bazabe besenza imisebenzi ebathokozisayo futhi enceda abanye.​—U-Isaya 65:22, 23.

Abazaphila phakade bazathola ithuba lokuqhubeka befunda okunengi ngoMdali wabo langemisebenzi yakhe emangalisayo. UJehova wadala abantu belesifiso sokuphila phakade lesokwazi okunengi ngaye.
