“Bwererani kwa ine, . . . ndipo ine ndidzabwerera kwa inu.”​ZEK. 1:3.

NYIMBO: 120, 117

1-3. (a) Kodi anthu a Mulungu ankakumana ndi zotani pa nthawi imene Zekariya anayamba ntchito yake? (b) N’chifukwa chiyani Yehova anauza anthu ake kuti ‘abwerere kwa iye’?

(Zek. 5:1, 7-9) N’chifukwa chiyani Yehova anaonetsa mneneriyu masomphenya amenewa? Kodi zinthu zinali bwanji pa nthawiyo ku Isiraeli? Nanga kodi masomphenyawa akutikhudza bwanji masiku ano?

2 M’chaka cha 537 B.C.E. anthu a Yehova anasangalala kwambiri chifukwa anamasulidwa ku ukapolo ku Babulo komwe anakhalako zaka 70. Iwo anasangalala kubwerera ku Yerusalemu kuti akamangenso kachisi n’kumalambira Yehova. Maziko a kachisiyu atamangidwa mu 536 B.C.E., anthu “anali kufuula kwambiri, ndipo phokoso lawo linali kumveka kutali kwambiri.” (Ezara 3:10-13) Koma pasanapite nthawi yaitali, anthu anayamba kulimbana nawo kuti asapitirize  kumanga kachisiyo. Chifukwa chokhumudwa, Aisiraeliwo anagwa ulesi pa ntchito yomangayo n’kuyamba kumanga nyumba zawo komanso kulima minda yawo. Pofika zaka 16, ntchito yomanga kachisi wa Yehova inali itaimiratu.

Yehova ankafuna kuti anthuwo abwerere kwa iye n’kuyambiranso kumulambira ndi mtima wonse komanso mopanda mantha.

3 Choncho mu 520 B.C.E., Yehova anatuma mneneri Zekariya kuti akumbutse Aisiraeliwo chifukwa chimene anawamasulira ku ukapolo wa ku Babulo. Ndipotu n’kutheka kuti dzina loti Zekariya, lomwe limatanthauza kuti “Yehova Wakumbukira,” linawakumbutsa za mfundo ina yofunika. Mfundo yake ndi yakuti ngakhale kuti Aisiraeli anaiwala zimene Yehova anawachitira, Mulungu ankawakumbukirabe. (Werengani Zekariya 1:3, 4.) Iye anawatsimikizira kuti adzawathandiza kuti ayambirenso kumulambira moyenera, koma anawachenjeza kuti sadzalekerera anthu amene samulambira ndi mtima wonse. Tiyeni tione mmene Yehova analimbikitsira anthuwo kuti ayambirenso kumulambira pogwiritsa ntchito masomphenya a nambala 6 ndi 7 amene Zekariya anaona. Tikambirananso zimene tikuphunzira pa masomphenya amenewa.

Koma popeza mpukutuwu unalembedwa mbali zonse, ndiye kuti unali ndi uthenga wamphamvu komanso wofunika kwambiri.

Akhristu ayenera kupewa kuba kwa mtundu uliwonse (Onani ndime 5-7)

5 Werengani Zekariya 5:3, 4Timadziwa kuti munthu aliyense adzayankha kwa Yehova, koma anthu amene amadziwika ndi dzina lake ali ndi udindo waukulu kwambiri pa nkhaniyi. Anthu amene amakonda Mulungu amadziwa kuti kuba kwa mtundu uliwonse ‘kumanyozetsa dzina la Mulungu wawo.’ (Miy. 30:8, 9) Kaya munthu waba pa zifukwa ziti, amasonyeza kuti chofunika kwambiri pa moyo wake ndi zinthu zimene wabazo osati kusangalatsa Mulungu. Amasonyeza kuti salemekeza malamulo a Yehova komanso dzina lake.

6 Lemba la Zekariya 5:3, 4 lanena kuti ‘temberero lidzalowa m’nyumba ya munthu wakuba n’kukakhala m’nyumba mwake n’kuwonongeratu nyumbayo.’ Izi zikusonyeza kuti chiweruzo cha Yehova sichithawika ngakhale munthu atadzikiyira m’nyumba. Chikhoza kufika paliponse pamene munthu wabisala n’kuchititsa kuti zoipa zimene wachita ziululike.

10 Popeza Zedekiya analumbira m’dzina la Mulungu, Yehova ankayembekezera kuti iye akwaniritse zimene analonjezazo. (2 Mbiri 36:13) Koma m’malomwake, Zedekiya anachita mgwirizano wosathandiza ndi Aiguputo pofuna kuti achoke m’manja mwa mfumu ya Babulo.​—Ezek. 17:11-15, 17, 18.

 12 Ndiye kodi tingakwaniritse bwanji lumbiro limeneli? Zimene timachita tikakumana ndi mayesero, kaya aakulu kapena aang’ono, ziyenera kusonyeza kuti timafunitsitsa kukwaniritsa lonjezo loti tizitamanda Yehova “tsiku ndi tsiku.” (Sal. 61:8) Mwachitsanzo, kodi tingatani ngati munthu wina kuntchito kapena kusukulu akutikopa? Kodi tidzakana zimene akufunazo n’cholinga choti tisonyeze kuti ‘timasangalala ndi njira’ za Yehova? (Miy. 23:26) Ngati anthu ena m’banja lathu si Mboni, kodi timapempha Yehova kuti atithandize kukhalabe ndi khalidwe labwino ngakhale pamene anthu enawo sakuchita zimenezo? Kodi tsiku lililonse timapemphera kwa Yehova n’kumamuthokoza chifukwa choti amatikonda komanso kutilamulira bwino? Kodi timayesetsa kuwerenga Baibulo tsiku lililonse? Pajatu tinalonjeza kuti tizichita zinthu ngati zimenezi. Tikamamvera Yehova ndiponso kumulambira ndi mtima wonse timasonyeza kuti timamukonda komanso tinadziperekadi kwa iye. Tiyenera kuona kuti kulambira Mulungu n’kofunika kwambiri pa moyo wathu, osati kumangomulambira mwamwambo chabe. Tikamakwaniritsa zimene tinalonjeza, ifeyo ndi amene timapindula chifukwa Yehova watilonjeza zinthu zabwino ngati tingapitirize kukhala okhulupirika.​—Deut. 10:12, 13.
