Koma Bibliya limbalewa kuti ‘mtima wa Aza ukhali wakusaya kugawanika kwa moyo wace wense.’ (2 Nkhani 15:16, 17; 25:1, 2; Mimwani 17:3) Nthawe zense iye adakondwesa Yahova ndipo ‘adamunamata mwakusaya  kugawanika’.

3 Munthu omwe ambatumikira Mulungu na ‘mtima wakusaya kugawanika’ ambafuna kwene-kwene Yahova ndipo ambafuna kumunamata kwa muyaya. Mu Bibliya, fala lakuti ‘mtima’ kawiri-kawiri limbathandauza unthu bwathu bwa mkati. Bzimwebzi bzimbaphatanidza kakumbukidwe kathu, bzomwe timbafuna, bzomwe timbacita pa moyo wathu na thangwe lomwe timbacitira bzinthubzo. Napo ndife wakuperewera, tinganamate Yahova na mtima wakusaya kugawanika. Timbatumikira Yahova thangwe timbamufuna na mtima wense sikuti thangwe ra kungingimizidwa.—2 Nkhani 19:9.

Ndipo Aza adafika mpaka pa kucosa yavu wace wacikazi pa udindo ‘bwa mambo-mkazi, thangwe iwo akhadakonza cifanikiso cakunyansa.’ (1 Wamambo 15:11-13) Aza adalimbisambo wanthu kuti ‘afufudze Yahova’ na kubvera ‘Cakutonga’ cace.

Iye akhapenukira lini kuti Yahova angadathandiza wanthu wace. Tenepo adapemba kuna Yahova kuti amuthandize kukunda nkhondoyo. (Werengani 2 Nkhani 14:11.)

(2 Nkhani 14:12, 13) Na kupita kwa nthawe, Aza adalatiza kusaya kukhulupirika mwa kukumbira thandizo kuna mambo wa Siriya m’mbuto mwa kukumbira Yahova. (1 Wamambo 15:16-22) Napo adacita bzimwebzi, Yahova adawona kuti Aza akhamufuna. Mtima wace ukhali ‘wakusaya kugawanika kwa Yahova’ pa moyo wace wense.

Mwa ciratizo, kodi n’ciyani comwe mungacite penu wacibale ayai xamwali wanu wa pa mtima wacita pikado ndipo alibe kukungula ndipo wacosedwa m’gwere?

Lekani kuyebwa kuti Mulungu adalimbisa Aza ndipo an’dzacitambo bzibodzi-bodzi na imwepo.

10 Mwana wa Aza, Jehosafati, ‘adapitiriza kufamba m’njira ya Aza, babace.’ (2 Nkhani 20:31, 32) Adacita tani bzimwebzi? Ninga babace, Jehosafati adalimbisa wanthu kuti apitirize kunamata Yahova. Iye adatumiza amuna ku mizinda ya Juda kuti akapfunzise wanthu mwakuphatisa basa ‘bukhu la Cakutonga ca Yahova.’ (2 Nkhani 17:7-10) Ndipo iye adayendambo ku bzigawo bza kumpoto bza umambo bwa Jirayeri, kwa wanthu wa ku mapiri ya Efraimu kuti akawathandize kubwerera kwa Yahova. (2 Nkhani 19:4)  Jehosafati akhali mambo omwe ‘adalinga Yahova na mtima wace wense.’—2 Nkhani 22:9.

Jehosafati adalimbisa wanthu kuti apitirize kunamata Yahova

11 Nsiku zino, Yahova an’funa kuti wanthu wense wa pa dziko la pansi apfunzisidwe fala lace, ndipo tensenefe tingathandize pa basali. Kodi imwepo mumbafuna kutenga mbali pa basali mwezi uli-wense?

Imwepo mukacita nyongo, Yahova angakuthandizeni kuti mukwanise kuyambisa pfunziro la Bibliya. Kodi imwepo mungakhale wakukonzeka kupfunza na munthu napo icikhala kuti ni nthawe yanu yakupuma? Ndipo ninga Jehosafati omwe adacita nyongo yakuthandiza winango kuti ayambe pomwe kutumikira Yahova, ifepano tingacitembo nyongo yakuthandiza wale omwe mbakudjedjera mwauzimu. Akulu wa m’gwere ambacitambo makonzedwe yakuzungira acithandiza wanthu wakucosedwa wa m’gawo lawo, wale omwe adasiya bzicito bzawo bzakuipa.

12, 13. (a) Pomwe Jehosafati adabva mantha, kodi n’ciyani comwe iye adacita? (b) Thangwe ranyi tin’funika kutewezera ciratizo ca Jehosafati?

12 Ninga baba wace Aza, Jehosafati adakhulupira Yahova pomwe thimu la anyankhondo lidabwera kudzamenyana na Juda. (Werengani 2 Nkhani 20:2-4.) Iye adabva mantha ndipo adakumbira thandizo kuna Yahova.

14, 15. Kodi Ezekiya adakhulupira tani Mulungu na mtima wense?

14 Ezekiya ni mambo munango omwe ‘adadimbirira kwa Yahova.’ Iye adacita bzimwebzi napo kuti baba wace akhana ciratizo cakuipa ndipo akhanamata bzifanikiso. Ezekiya ‘adapfudza mbuto zapadzulu zakunamatira, adagwesa mbiru zakupambulika ndipo adagwesambo mtanda wakupambulika. Iye adapswanya nyoka ya mkuwa yomwe Mozeji akhadaikonza,’ adacita bzimwebzi thangwe Ajirayeri akhainamata. Ezekiya akhanamata Yahova na mtima wakusaya kugawanika. ‘Iye adapitiriza kukoya bzakutonga bzomwe Yahova akhadapasa Mozeji.’—2 Wamambo 18:1-6.

Iye akhadziwa kuti Mulungu ana mphanvu kwene-kwene kuposa mambo wa Asiriya ndipo akhadziwa kuti angadapulumusa wanthu wace. (Werengani Zaiya 37:15-20.) Mulungu adatawira mpembo wace mwa kutumiza anjo kuti akaphe acikunda wakukwana 185.000 wa Asiriya.—Zaiya 37:36, 37.

16, 17. Kodi mungatewezere tani Ezekiya?

(Werengani 2 Wamambo 20:1-3.) Yahova adabva mpembo wa Ezekiya ndipo adamulimbisa. Bibliya limbatiuza kuti nsiku zino tingadikhire lini kuti Mulungu angaticize mwakudabwisa ayai kutalikisa moyo wathu. Koma ninga Ezekiya, tin’funika kukhulupira thandizo la Yahova. Tingamuuze kuti: ‘Imwe Yahova, ndaphata minyendo kumbukirani kuti ndidafamba pa maso panu mwakukhulupirika na mtima wakusaya kugawanika.’ Kodi imwepo mumbakhulupira kuti Yahova nthawe zense an’dzakusamalirani, napo pomwe munkuduwala?—Psalymo 41:3.

17 Kodi ni mu njira inango iponi yomwe tingatewezerere Ezekiya? Pinango pana cinthu cinango comwe cinkuphingiza uxamwali bwanu na Yahova ayai cinkukucitisani kuti muleke kukhala na nthawe yakukwanira kuti mumutumikire. Mwa ciratizo, nsiku zino wanthu azinji ambawona wanthu winango wakubvekera ninga mulungu wawo. Iwo ambalemekeza mwakunyanya wanthu amwewa na wanthu winango omwe ambawadziwa lini. Ndipo ambamala nthawe yawo ankuwerenga bza wanthu amwewa na kumbawona bzithunzi-thunzi bzawo. Ayai iwo kawiri-kawiri ambaphatisa basa bzikasi bzakumwazira nkhani na njira zinango kuti alewelewe pa interneti. Kulewa cadidi, timbakhala wakukondwa kuphatisa basa njira zimwezi kuti tilewelewe na abale wathu ayai axamwali wathu. Koma tingadzonge nthawe yathu izinji pomwe tinkuphatisa basa njira zimwezi. Pinango tingayambe kubzikuza penu wanthu azinji ankulewa kuti akomedwa na bzithunzi-thunzi ayai mafala yomwe tayanemba pa interneti. Ayai tingakhumudwe penu tazindikira kuti wanthu winango aleka kuwona bzithunzi-thunzibzo ayai ankuwerenga lini pomwe mafala yathuyo. Ifepano tingapfunze kucokera pa ciratizo ca mpostolo Paulo, Akila na Prisila. Kodi munkumbuka kuti iwo akhamala nthawe izinji ankufufudza cinthu ciri-cense comwe wanthu akhacita, maka-maka wanthu omwe akhatumikira lini Yahova?

(Mabasa 18:4, 5, 26) Mungabzibvunze kuti: ‘Kodi ndimbasamala kuti ndileke kuwona wanthu winango wakubvekera ninga mulungu? Kodi ndimbatcenkha kumala nthawe izinji ndinkucita bzinthu bzomwe mpsakufunika lini?’—Werengani Wayefezo 5:15, 16.

Pomwe akhana magole 20 yakubadwa, iye adayamba kumalisa kunamata bzifanikiso mu dziko la Juda. (Werengani 2 Nkhani 34:1-3.) Josiya adacita nyongo ya kukondwesa Yahova kuposa wamambo winango wa Juda. Ndipo nsiku inango, wansembe mkulu adagumana bukhu la Cakutonga ca Mulungu mu tempwlo. Pinango Mozeji ndiye omwe akhadanemba bukhuli! Pomwe munembi adawerengera Josiya bukhulo, iye adazindikira kuti akhafunika kucita bzinthu bzakuthumizirika kuti atumikire Yahova mwakukwanira. Ndipo iye adalimbisa wanthu kucitambo bzibodzi-bodzi.

Mukambapfunza Bibliya, pinango imwepo mungazindikire njira zinango zakukulisira luso lanu pakutumikira Mulungu. Bzikakhala tenepo, citani bzomwe mungakwanise kuti mucinje bzinthu pa moyo wanu ninga momwe Josiya adacitira.
