Kenako tinadya chakudya chapamwamba kwambiri ndipo panali nyimbo zabwino kwambiri; zonse zinali zapamwamba kwambiri. Zimenezo n’zimene ndinkafuna, ndipo panalibenso munthu wondiposa.’

Ayi. M’malo mwake, pokonzekera ukwati wawo afunika kuganizira malangizo akuti “iye amene achita chifuniro cha Mulungu akhala ku nthawi zonse.”​—1 Yohane 2:16, 17.

Sayenera kukakamizika kuchita phwando lalikulu la ukwati. Akasankha kuchita phwando, ayenera kuganizira mtengo wake ndiponso mtundu wa phwandolo. (Luka 14:28) M’banja lawo lachikristu, mwamuna adzakhala mutu mogwirizana ndi Malemba. (1 Akorinto 11:3; Aefeso 5:22, 23) Motero, mkwati ndiye amene ali ndi udindo waukulu pa phwando la ukwati.

Paphwandolo panali “mkulu wa phwando,” amene mosakayikira ankalambirira limodzi mokhulupirika ndi eni ukwatiwo.

(Luka 12:45, 46) Podabwa ndi vinyo wabwino uja, mkuluyo anasonyeza kuti anaonapo nthawi zina pamene anthu obwera ku ukwati analedzera. (Machitidwe 2:15; 1 Atesalonika 5:7) Motero, mkwati ndiponso Mkristu wodalirika amene wasankhidwa kukhala mkulu wa phwando, ayenera kuonetsetsa kuti onse ofika pa phwandolo akutsatira malangizo omveka bwino awa, akuti: “Musaledzere naye vinyo, mmene muli chitayiko.”​—Aefeso 5:18; Miyambo 20:1; Hoseya 4:11.

Sayenera kusiyira abandi, kaya ndi olipidwa kapena ayi, kuti ndiwo asankhe mtundu wa nyimbo ndiponso voliyumu yake. Paulo analemba kuti: “Chilichonse mukachichita m’mawu kapena muntchito, chitani zonse m’dzina la Ambuye Yesu.” (Akolose 3:17) Anthu akabwerera kwawo pambuyo pa phwando (kapena madyerero) a ukwati ndi kukumbukira nyimbo za paphwandopo, kodi adzaona kuti mwamuna ndi mkaziyo achita chilichonse m’dzina la Yesu?

(1 Yohane 2:16, 17) Malinga ndi mfundo youziridwa yomwe Yohane anatchula, kodi anthu omwe angokwatirana kumene ayenera kulengeza mayina a anthu amene apereka mphatso ndiponso mphatso zawo? Akristu a ku Makedoniya ndi ku Akaya anapereka chithandizo kwa abale awo ku Yerusalemu, koma palibe pamene pamasonyeza kuti mayina awo analengezedwa. (Aroma 15:26) Akristu ambiri amene apereka mphatso pa ukwati angakonde kuti anthu asadziwe mayina awo, m’malo mofuna kudzionetsera. Pamfundoyi, onani uphungu wa Yesu womwe uli pa Mateyu 6:1-4.

Motero, Akristu anzeru omwe angokwatirana kumene salengeza mayina a anthu amene apereka mphatso. Kulengeza mayinawo kungachititse manyazi anthu ena amene mwina sanathe kupereka mphatso. (Agalatiya 5:26; 6:10) N’zoona kuti palibe cholakwika kuti mkwati ndi mkwatibwi adziwe amene wapereka mphatso inayake. Iwo angathe kudziwa zimenezo kudzera pa khadi labwino lomwe munthu waperekera limodzi ndi mphatsoyo, koma osati n’cholinga choti awerengere anthu ayi.

Inde, tingasonyeze chikhulupiriro chathu, mwa ntchito ‘zochitidwa mokwanira,’ kuphatikizapo mbali zosiyanasiyana zokhudza moyo wathu zomwe takambirana m’nkhani ino.​—Chivumbulutso 3:2, NW.
