Anthu ataona Mose anachita mantha kwambiri moti mpaka Moseyo anaphimba nkhope yake. (Eks. 34:29, 30, 33; 2 Akor. 3:7, 13) Ndiyeno Paulo ananena kuti: “Koma munthu akatembenukira kwa Yehova, chophimbacho chimachotsedwa.” (2 Akor. 3:16) Kodi pamenepa ankatanthauza chiyani?

4 Monga tinanenera mu nkhani yoyamba ija, Yehova yekha, amene analenga zinthu zonse, ndi amene ali ndi ufulu wopanda malire. Choncho m’pake kuti pamene pali Yehova komanso mzimu wake pamakhala ufulu. Ndiyeno kuti ife tipeze ufuluwo, tiyenera ‘kutembenukira kwa Yehovayo’ kapena kuti kukhala naye pa ubwenzi wabwino. Pa nthawi imene Aisiraeli anali m’chipululu, sankaona moyenera zinthu zimene Yehova ankawachitira. Tingati anali ndi chophimba m’maganizo ndi mumtima moti ankaona kuti ufulu umene analandira potulutsidwa ku Iguputo unali wongowathandiza kuti azipanga zimene akufuna, osati azisangalatsa Yehova.​—Aheb. 3:8-10.

Munthu akhoza kukhala pa ufulu umenewu ngakhale pamene ali mundende kapena ku ukapolo. (Gen. 39:20-23) Umboni wake ndi zimene zinachitikira M’bale Harold King. Iye anapirira bwinobwino pamene anatsekeredwa m’ndende chifukwa cha chikhulupiriro chake. Kuti mudziwe zimene anakumana nazo mungapite pa JW Broadcasting.

Pasanapite miyezi yambiri, anayamba kulakalaka zakudya ndi zakumwa zimene anazisiya ku Iguputo ndipo ankadandaula kuti zinthu zimene Yehova akuwapatsa si zabwino. Anafika mpaka pofuna kubwerera ku Iguputo. Tangoganizani, eti ankaona kuti ‘nsomba, nkhaka, mavwende, adyo komanso anyezi’ zinali zabwino kuposa ufulu wolambira umene Yehova, yemwe ndi Mulungu woona, anawapatsa. M’pake kuti Yehova anakwiya nawo kwambiri. (Num. 11:5, 6, 10; 14:3, 4) Kodi tikuphunzirapo chiyani?

7. Kodi Paulo anachita bwanji zinthu mogwirizana ndi malangizo ake a pa 2 Akorinto 6:1, nanga ife tingamutsanzire bwanji?

7 Mtumwi Paulo anauza Akhristu onse kuti  asamapeputse ufulu umene Yehova watipatsa kudzera mwa Mwana wake, Yesu Khristu. (Werengani 2 Akorinto 6:1.) Ndiye taganizirani mmene Paulo zinkamupwetekera mumtima chifukwa choti anali kapolo wa uchimo ndi imfa. Koma iye ananena moyamikira kuti Mulungu adzamumasula “kudzera mwa Yesu Khristu Ambuye wathu.” Iye anafotokozera Akhristu anzake mmene izi zingachitikire.

Dipo limatithandiza kuti tizitumikira Mulungu mosangalala tili ndi chikumbumtima chabwino.​—Sal. 40:8.

Mtumwi Petulo ananena kuti si bwino kugwiritsa ntchito ufuluwu kuti tikwaniritse zimene thupi lathu limalakalaka. (Werengani 1 Petulo 2:16.) Chenjezo limeneli liyenera kutikumbutsa zimene zinachitikira Aisiraeli m’chipululu. Choncho nafenso tiyenera kukhala osamala kwambiri chifukwa n’zosavuta kuti tikodwe mumsamphawu. Satana ndi dziko lakeli amafuna kuti tizikopeka ndi kavalidwe, njira zodzikongoletsera, chakudya, zakumwa, zosangalatsa komanso zinthu zosiyanasiyana. Makampani amatsatsa malonda pogwiritsa ntchito anthu ooneka bwino n’cholinga choti tizilakalaka kukhala ndi zinthu zambiri zosafunika kwenikweni. Choncho n’zosavuta kukopeka n’kuyamba kugwiritsa ntchito ufulu wathu m’njira yolakwika.

9 Malangizo a Petulowa amagwiranso ntchito posankha zinthu zikuluzikulu monga maphunziro ndi ntchito. Mwachitsanzo, achinyamata amene ali pasukulu amalimbikitsidwa kuti aphunzire kwambiri m’masukulu apamwamba. Iwo amauzidwa kuti maphunziro apamwamba ndi amene angawathandize kuti apezenso ntchito yapamwamba n’kumalandira ndalama zambiri. Ndipo kafukufuku amasonyeza kuti anthu amene anaphunzira kwambiri amalandira ndalama zambirimbiri tikayerekezera ndi amene sanaphunzire kwambiri. Ndiye poti achinyamatawo amafuna kukhala ndi tsogolo labwino, zimakhala zosavuta kuti akopeke ndi zimenezi. Koma kodi ndi mfundo ziti zimene achinyamatawo limodzi ndi makolo awo ayenera kuziganizira?

10. Kodi tiyenera kuganizira mfundo ziti posankha zochita pa moyo wathu?

10 Anthu ena amaganiza kuti munthu aliyense ali ndi ufulu wosankha pa nkhani ngati zimenezi malinga ngati chikumbumtima chake chikumulola. Mwina amaona kuti nkhaniyi ikufanana ndi nkhani ya chakudya imene Paulo anauza Akhristu a ku Korinto.

Koma kumbukirani kuti ufulu umene timapatsidwa uli ndi malire ake ndipo chilichonse chimene timasankha chimakhala ndi zotsatira zake. N’chifukwa chake Paulo anayamba mawu akewa ndi mfundo yakuti: “Zinthu zonse ndi zololeka, koma si zonse zimene zili zaphindu. Zinthu zonse ndi zololeka, koma si zonse zimene zili zolimbikitsa.” (1 Akor. 10:23) Mfundo imeneyi ingatithandize kuona kuti munthu asanasankhe zochita pa nkhani ngati zimenezi ayenera kuganizira kaye zinthu zina zofunika kwambiri.

(Mat. 28:19, 20) Ntchito imeneyi si yophweka ndipo pali mavuto  ambiri amene tingakumane nawo. M’mayiko ena anthu amadana kwambiri ndi ntchitoyi ndipo amatilusira. Koma funso limene aliyense ayenera kudzifunsa ndi lakuti: ‘Kodi n’zotheka kuti ineyo ndigwiritse ntchito ufulu umene ndili nawo panopa kuti ndizichita zambiri popititsa patsogolo ntchito za Ufumu?’

14, 15. Kodi anthu a Mulungu achita zotani pa nkhani yogwira ntchito yolalikira mwakhama? (Onani chithunzi choyambirira.)

14 N’zolimbikitsa kuona kuti anthu ambiri masiku ano azindikira zoti nthawi yotsalayi yafupika ndipo ayamba moyo wosalira zambiri n’cholinga choti azilalikira kwambiri.
