Zinthu zonse zomwe zili padzikoli, monga golide komanso siliva, ndi za Yehova ndipo amazigwiritsa ntchito kuti zinthu zamoyo zipitirize kukhala ndi moyo. (Sal. 104:13-15; Hag. 2:8) M’Baibulo muli nkhani zambiri zimene zimasonyeza mmene Yehova anagwiritsira ntchito zinthu zimene analenga kuti athandize anthu.

2 Mwachitsanzo, Yehova ankapatsa Aisiraeli mana ndi madzi pa zaka 40 zimene anali m’chipululu moti “sanasowe kanthu.” (Eks. 16:35; Neh. 9:20, 21) Pa nthawi inanso, Yehova anagwiritsa ntchito mneneri Elisa kuti achulukitse mafuta ochepa amene mkazi wina wamasiye anatsala nawo. Zimene Mulungu anamuchitirazi zinamuthandiza kuti apeze ndalama zobwezera ngongole zake komanso zoti iyeyo ndi mwana wake azigwiritsa ntchito. (2 Maf. 4:1-7) Yehova anagwiritsanso ntchito Yesu kuti athandize anthu kupeza chakudya komanso ndalama.​—Mat. 15:35-38; 17:27.

Kodi atumiki a Mulungu akale ankapereka zinthu ziti pothandiza anthu amene Yehova ankawagwiritsa ntchito? Nanga masiku ano gulu la Yehova limagwiritsa ntchito bwanji ndalama zimene zimaperekedwa? Tikambirana mayankho a mafunsowa munkhaniyi.

Yehova anauza Mose kuti alamule Aisiraeli kuti azikaonekera kwa Yehova pa zikondwerero zitatu zimene zinkachitika chaka chilichonse. Aisiraeliwo sankayenera kupita kukalambira Yehova “chimanjamanja.” (Deut. 16:16) Masiku anonso, kupereka zinthu mowolowa manja pothandiza pa ntchito ya gulu la Yehova ndi mbali yofunika ya kulambira kwathu.

6. N’chifukwa chiyani tinganene kuti kupatsa kumatithandiza? (Onani chithunzi choyambirira.)

6 Kupereka zinthu kumatithandiza. Ndi bwino kuti tikhale ndi mtima wopatsa osati kumangofuna kuti anthu azitipatsa zinthu. (Werengani Miyambo 29:21.) Mwachitsanzo, mwana wamng’ono angapatse makolo ake mphatso imene wagula ndi kandalama kamene makolowo anamupatsa. Makolowo akhoza kuyamikira kwambiri. Kapena mwina wachinyamata amene adakali pakhomo ndipo akuchita upainiya angapatse makolo ake ndalama zinazake pothandiza kugula zinthu zina zofunika. N’kutheka kuti makolowo sayembekezera kuti mwana wawo azichita zimenezi. Koma akhoza kulandira mphatsoyi chifukwa chodziwa kuti ndi njira imene mwanayo akuyamikirira zimene amamuchitira. Nayenso Yehova amadziwa kuti kupereka zinthu zathu zamtengo wapatali kumatithandiza.

7 M’Malemba muli zitsanzo zambiri za anthu amene anapereka zinthu zawo kwa Yehova. Nthawi zina anthu a Yehova ankapereka zinthu pofuna kuthandiza pa ntchito zapadera. Mwachitsanzo, Mose anapempha anthu kuti apereke zinthu pothandiza kumanga chihema, pomwe Davide anapempha anthu kuti apereke zinthu pothandiza kumanga kachisi. (Eks. 35:5; 1 Mbiri 29:5-9) Pa nthawi ya Mfumu Yehoasi,  ansembe anagwiritsa ntchito zinthu zimene anthu anapereka pokonza zimene zinawonongeka panyumba ya Yehova. (2 Maf. 12:4, 5) Nawonso Akhristu oyambirira atamva kuti abale awo akuvutika ndi njala, “anatsimikiza mtima kutumiza thandizo lililonse limene akanatha kwa abale okhala ku Yudeya.”​—Mac. 11:27-30.

8 Atumiki ena anapereka zinthu pothandiza anthu amene ankatsogolera pa ntchito ya Yehova. Mogwirizana ndi Chilamulo cha Mose, Alevi sankalandira cholowa ngati mmene zinalili ndi mafuko ena. M’malomwake, Aisiraeli ankawapatsa chakhumi, kapena kuti gawo limodzi pa magawo 10 a zinthu zawo, n’cholinga choti Aleviwo aziika maganizo onse pa ntchito yawo yakuchihema.

Mwachitsanzo, zinthu zambiri zimene Aisiraeli ankapereka pothandiza kumanga chihema m’chipululu ziyenera kuti anazitenga pochoka ku Iguputo. (Eks. 3:21, 22; 35:22-24) Mu nthawi ya atumwi, Akhristu ena ankagulitsa chuma chawo, monga minda ndi nyumba, ndipo ankabweretsa ndalama zimene anapezazo kwa atumwi. Ndiyeno atumwiwo ankapereka ndalamazo kwa anthu ena kuti ziwathandize. (Mac. 4:34, 35) Koma Akhristu ena ankaika ndalama zinazake pambali n’cholinga choti azipereka pothandiza pa ntchito ya Mulungu. (1 Akor. 16:2) Choncho anthu onse, kaya olemera kapena osauka, ankatha kupereka zinthu zawo.​—Luka 21:1-4.

Timaponya ndalamazo m’mabokosi a ku Nyumba ya Ufumu kapena timapereka kudzera pawebusaiti yathu ya jw.org. Tikhoza kuganiza kuti ndalama zochepa zimene timapereka n’zosathandiza kwenikweni. Komatu ndalama za gulu lathu zimachokera kwa anthu ambiri amene amapereka zochepa, osati kwa anthu ochepa amene amapereka zambiri. Abale athu osauka ali ngati a ku Makedoniya omwe anali pa “umphawi wadzaoneni” koma anachonderera kuti akhale ndi mwayi wopereka nawo ndipo anapereka mowolowa manja.​—2 Akor. 8:1-4.

(Mat. 24:45) Iwo amapanga  bajeti ndipo amaitsatira pogwiritsa ntchito ndalamazo. (Luka 14:28) Kale, atumiki amene ankayang’anira ndalama za gulu la Yehova ankaonetsetsa kuti ndalamazo zikugwira ntchito yoyenera. Mwachitsanzo, Ezara anatenga zinthu zimene mfumu ya Perisiya inapereka n’kupita nazo ku Yerusalemu. Mfumuyo inapereka golide, siliva ndiponso zinthu zina ndipo zonse pamodzi mtengo wake panopa ungakwane madola a ku United States okwana 100 miliyoni. Ezara ankaona kuti zoperekazi ndi za Yehova ndipo anaonetsetsa kuti zikhale zotetezeka pa ulendowo, womwe unali woopsa. (Ezara 8:24-34) Mtumwi Paulo anatenga ndalama zimene abale anapereka kuti zikathandize Akhristu a ku Yudeya. Iye anaonetsetsa kuti anthu amene anakapereka ndalamazo ‘azisamalire moona mtima, osati pamaso pa Yehova pokha ayi, komanso pamaso pa anthu.’ (Werengani 2 Akorinto 8:18-21.) Masiku ano gulu lathu limatsanzira Ezara ndi Paulo poonetsetsa kuti zopereka zikugwiritsidwa ntchito moyenera.

(Mal. 3:10) Yehova ananeneratu kuti munthu amene amapereka mowolowa manja, zinthu zidzamuyendera bwino. (Werengani Miyambo 11:24, 25.) Munthu wopatsa amasangalalanso kwambiri chifukwa Baibulo limanena kuti: “Kupatsa kumabweretsa chimwemwe chochuluka kuposa kulandira.” (Mac. 20:35) Choncho zolankhula komanso zochita zathu ziyenera kuthandiza ana athu komanso anthu atsopano kuzindikira zimene angachite kuti azipereka kwa Yehova ndiponso madalitso amene angalandire.
