(Rhu. 23:1-3) “UZimu ubuphephelo namandlethu” khulukhulu nesibambe igagadlhela!

2, 3. (a) Kuyingozi kangangani ukungathokozi? (b) Ngimiphi imibuzo esizokucoca ngayo esihlokwenesi?

2 Kubayini kufuze singakuthathi kancani ukuthokoza? Kukuthi abantu banamhlanjesi abasathokozi, njengombana neBhayibheli latjho bona bazokuba njalo. (2 Thim. 3:2) Abe abanamsebenzi nezinto abaphiwe zona. Lokho kwenziwa kukuthi zokukhangisa nezeemali zephaseli zibamotjhe iingqondo, ngikho iingidigidi zabantu zinganeliseki, zifuna izinto ezinengi epilweni. Nathi-ke singazifumana sesiwurhuqa umoya onjalo  wokungathokozi. Singazithola sesifana patsi nama-Israyeli wekadeni, singazithokozi izinto uJehova asiphe zona, silahlekelwe nasikhozi sethu naye.—Rhu. 106:7, 11-13.

3 Cabanga-ke ngalokho okungenzeka nesiqalene nobudisi. Iinkhathi ezinjalo zingasiwurubaja kangangobana sigcine sele singasaziboni neembusiso esele sinazo. (Rhu. 116:3) Manje singazifundisa njani ukuba babantu abathokozako, begodu sihlale sinjalo? Yini engasisiza bona sikghodlhelele nanyana sihlezi phezu kwamalahle atjhisako nje? Akhesiyitjhuke indaba le.

ZINGANGANI IZINTO UJEHOVA ASENZELE ZONA?

5. Sifundani kumpostoli uPowula ngokuzifundisa ukuthokoza?

5 Kunengi esingakufunda kumpostoli uPowula ngokuzifundisa ukuthokoza. Kungenzeka ukuthi bekazindla ngalokho uZimu ambusise ngakho, ngikho bekahlala amthokoza ngokusuka ehliziywenakhe. UPowula bekazi kuhle bona ‘bekamhlambalazi, amzumi wabantu begodu anenturhu.’ Kodwana bekahlala amthokoza uZimu ngombana ngaphezu kwendlela ebekaziphatha ngayo, uZimu noKrestu baba nomusa kuye bamnikela umsebenzi lo! (Funda u-1 Thimothi 1:12-14.) UPowula bekawathanda amaKrestu akunye nawo, ahlala athokoza uZimu ngabantu abanobuntu obuhle kangaka nabasebenza ngokwethembeka. (Flp. 1:3-5, 7; 1 Thes. 1:2, 3) Ngesikhathi uPowula aqalene nobudisi, bekangananazi ukumthokoza uJehova ngokumsekela ngabazalwana abamaKrestu. (IzE. 28:15; 2 Kor. 7:5-7) Ngikho uPowula awakhuthaza ngokuthi: “Yibani nokuthokoza . . .  fundisanani beniyalane ngakho koke ukuhlakanipha; vumelani uZimu amarhubo, iingoma kanye nomvumo wokukholwa ngokuthokoza eenhliziyweni zenu.”—Kol. 3:15-17.

6. Ngiziphi izinto esingazithokoza uJehova asenzele zona?

6 Singamlingisa njani uPowula endabeni yokuzifundisa ukuthokoza? Singamlingisa ngokuthi sizindle ngezinto uJehova asenzele zona thina mathupha. (Rhu. 116:12) Newungabuzwa ukuthi ‘Ngiziphi izinto ozithokoza kwamambala ezintweni uJehova akwenzele zona?’ ungaphendula uthini? Kghani buhlobo bakho naye? Namkha indlela akulibalela ngayo ngebanga lesihlengo sakaKrestu? Kungenzeka na bona uthokoza ngokuba nabazalwana abakghodlhelela ngaphezu kobudisi abaqalene nabo? Mhlamunye ungamthokoza ngokuba nomlingani womtjhado omthanda khulu nabantwana bakho. Yeke ziphe isikhathi sokuzindla ngazo zoke izintwezi esiziphiwe nguBabethu onethando uJehova. Nawenza njalo, angekhe ulise ukumthokoza.—Funda iRhubo 92:1, 2.

7. (a) Kubayini kufuze sithi nesithandazako sithokoze? (b) Ungamthokoza njani uZimu emithandazwenakho?

7 Nesingaba neembusiswezo engqondweni naseenhliziyweni zethu, singakghona ukuthandaza kuJehova simthokoze. (Rhu. 95:2; 100:4, 5) Abanengi bathandaza kuZimu nebabawako kwaphela.  Kodwana thina siyazi bona kuyamthabisa uJehova nesimthokozako ngezinto asiphe zona. EBhayibhelini kunabantu abanengi ebebathandaza ngehliziyo yoke, abanjengoHana noHezekhiya. (1 Sam. 2:1-10; Isa. 38:9-20) Yeke, akhubalingise nawe, umthokoze ngazo zoke iimbusiso asiphe zona njengabo. (1 Thes. 5:17, 18) Zinengi izinto esizizuzako ngokwenza njalo. Uyakhuthazeka, nethando lakho ngoJehova liyakhula bese isikhozi senu siyaqina.—Jak. 4:8.

8 Kubayini kufuze sikhiphe amehlo enyameni, sitjheje bona singagcini sele singasazithokozi izinto uJehova asenzele zona? Akhucabange ngalokhu: Ababelethi bethu bokuthoma, u-Adamu nonakwakhe u-Eva bebaphila esimini eyipharadesi. Bebanazo zoke izinto abazitlhogako, banethuba lokuphila isiphelani. (Gen. 1:28) Kodwana akhenge bakuthokoze lokho. Baba magovu bafuna nezinto ezingakabafaneli. Umphumela waba kukuthi balahlekelwa ngikho koke. (Gen. 3:6, 7, 17-19) Nathi njengombana siphila nabantu bephasi abangathokoziko nje, singazifumana sele singasaziboni izinto uJehova asenzele zona. Singathoma ngokuthatha isikhozi sethu noJehova lula. Bese singasabi namsebenzi nabazalwana ephasini loke. Sithome-ke singene sivele ngehloko ezintweni zephaseli ezizokudlula kungasikade. (1 Jwa. 2:15-17) Kunokuthi sisolo simodza emukghweni wokungathokozi lo, kuhle nasingazifundisa ukuzindla ngeembusiso esinazo, simthokoze ngaso soke isikhathi ngokuba sehlanganwenakhe.—Funda iRhubo 27:4.

Ngokwesibonelo, ngemva kokuthi ama-Israyeli aphuluswe esandleni sakaFaro namabuthwakhe, athokoza bekamdumisa uZimu ngeengoma.
