(1 Sam. 17:4, 48-51;  1 Mbiri 20:5, 8) Patapita zaka zambiri, Davide anamenyananso ndi chiphona china pamene Aisiraeli anali pa nkhondo ndi Afilisiti. Chiphonachi dzina lake linali Isibi-benobi, yemwenso anali wa m’fuko la Arefai. (2 Sam. 21:16) Koma panthawiyi, chiphonachi chinatsala pang’ono kupha Davide. Sikuti izi zinachitika chifukwa choti Davide anasiya kulimba mtima koma chifukwa chakuti iye anachepa mphamvu. Baibulo limati: “Davide anatopa.” Isibi-benobi atangoona kuti Davide watopa, ‘anaganiza zoti amuphe.’ Koma chiphonachi chisanaponye lupanga, “nthawi yomweyo Abisai mwana wa Zeruya anathandiza Davide ndipo anakantha Mfilisitiyo ndi kumupha.” (2 Sam. 21:15-17) Apatu Davide anapulumukira m’kamwa mwa mbuzi. Mosakayikira, Davide anayamikira kwambiri kuti Abisai anali tcheru ndi zimene zinali kumuchitikira ndipo anamuthandiza mwamsanga pamene moyo wake unali pa ngozi. Kodi nkhaniyi ikutiphunzitsa chiyani?

14 Anthu a Yehovafe padziko lonse lapansi tikutumikira Mulungu ngakhale kuti Satana ndi anthu ake akuyesetsa kutisokoneza. Ena a ife talimbana ndi mavuto akuluakulu okhala ngati Goliati ndipo tawagonjetsa chifukwa chodalira Yehova. Komabe nthawi zina timatopa ndiponso kukhumudwa chifukwa chokhalira kulimbana ndi mavuto a m’dzikoli. Tikafooka choncho, timakhala pa ngozi yogonjetsedwa ndi mavuto amene tikanatha kulimbana nawo bwinobwino. Pa nthawi ngati zimenezi, thandizo limene mkulu angapereke lingatilimbikitse ndiponso kutithandiza kukhalanso ndi chimwemwe. Zimenezi zachitikira abale ndi alongo ambiri. Mwachitsanzo, mlongo wina wa zaka zoposa 60, amene akuchita upainiya, anati: “Nthawi ina m’mbuyomu, sindinkamva bwino m’thupi ndipo ndinkatopa kwambiri ndikalowa mu utumiki. Mkulu wina anazindikira kuti ndikuoneka wofooka ndipo anandithandiza. Tinakambirana nkhani ina yolimbikitsa ya m’Baibulo. Ndinatsatira malangizo ake ndipo zinandithandiza.” Mlongoyu ananenanso kuti: “Ndimathokoza kwambiri kuti mkuluyo anandisonyeza chikondi. Anazindikira kuti ndinafooka n’kundithandiza.” Zimatilimbikitsa kwambiri kudziwa kuti akulu amatikonda ndipo amachita nafe chidwi. Komanso, mofanana ndi Abisai, iwo amakhala okonzeka kutithandiza.

Iye analembera Akorinto kuti: “Ndidzagwiritsa ntchito zinthu zanga zonse ndipo ndidzadzipereka ndi moyo wanga wonse chifukwa cha miyoyo yanu.” (2 Akor. 12:15) Chifukwa chokonda abale ake, Paulo ankadzipereka kwambiri kuti awathandize. (Werengani 2 Akorinto 2:4; Afil. 2:17; 1 Ates. 2:8) M’pake kuti abale ankamukonda kwambiri Paulo.—Mac. 20:31-38.

16 Ifenso timakonda kwambiri akulu athu amene amatisamalira mwachikondi ndipo timathokoza Yehova m’mapemphero athu kuti amawagwiritsa ntchito kutithandiza.
