(Ju. 11:36) Ifepano tin’funika lini kunamizira kuti ndife abale na mpfumakazi koma tin’funadi kukhala abale na mpfumakazi. (Mat. 23:8) Cikhumbo cathu ca mphanvu ca momwe timbabvera mu mtima pa kufuna munthu winango cimbalewedwa mwacigwatho na mafala yakuti: ‘Pakufuna abale, khalani na lufoyi cairo pakati panu.

Jezu adalewa momwe bzikhaliri bzakunesa kukhala mu nthawe imweyo.

Mukabisale kwa kanthawe mpaka ukali butapita.’ (Zai. 26:20) Mafala yakuti ‘m’bzipinda bzanu’ yan’funa kulewa magwere yathu. Zimwezi ni mbuto zomwe timbayenda abale na mpfumakazi kuti tikanamate pabodzi Yahova. Tsono kutsonkhana mwakukhazikika si kwakukwana kwa ifepano. Paulo adakumbusa Akristau wa Cihebereu kuti iwo wakhafunika kuphatisa basa nthawe imweyi kuti wambalimbisane winango na mwanzace ‘pa lufoyi na pa mabasa yabwino.’ (Waheb. 10:24, 25) Tin’funika kukulisa lufoyi lathu kwa abale tsapano, bzimwebzi bzin’dzatithandiza pa nthawe yomwe tin’dzagumana na mabvuto kutsogolo.

(Cibv. 6:5, 6) Na kuthumizirika kwa mabvutoya ni mpata wathu kuti tiratize lufoyi cairo kwa abale wathu. Napo ‘lufoyi la [wanthu] wazinji linkumala’, ifepano tin’funika kupitiriza kufuna abale wathu.Mat. 24:12. [1]

Wense awiri wadadekera mtima alendo womwe iwo akhawadziwa lini. Ndipo alendowa akhali anjo. (Ciy. 18:2-5; 19:1-3) Paulo adalewa bziratizo bzimwebzi pakufuna kuwalimbisa Akristau Wacihebereu kuti wakhale na cizolowezi ca kumbafuna abale wawo mwa kumbatambira alendo.

(Waf. 1:12-14) Iye adawauza abalewo kuti akhafunika kulatiza ‘nsisi kwa womwe wali mkawoko.’ (Waheb. 10:34) Kupambula wale womwe akhamuwona pomwe akhamusamalira mkawoko, Akristau Wacihebereu akhakwanisa lini kuwonana naye. Kodi iwo angadalatiza tani kuti ambamukumbukira? Iwo akhafunika kucita mipembo kwa Yahova kuti awathandize kuti Pauloyo abwerere pomwe kwa iwo.Waheb. 13:18, 19.
