Iumi duim olsem nomata olketa no fit for duim staka samting. (Matt. 13:23) Michael, wea hem iusim wheelchair, hem barava tinghae long help wea hem kasem from famili bilong hem and olketa brata and sista long field service grup bilong hem. Hem sei: “From olketa helpem mi, mi savve attendim meeting staka taem and for duim ministry. Mi barava laek for duim pablik witnessing.”

11 Sapos iumi kaen and tingim olketa brata and sista, iumi bae followim wanem Bible talem for “duim evri samting long wei wea hem stret and wea no olobaot.” (1 Cor. 14:40) Olketa brata wea garem part long meeting obeyim datfala kaonsel taem olketa followim taem.  Wei wea olketa duim datwan hem showimaot olketa no just tingim nomoa brata wea bae givim tok bihaen, bat olketa tingim tu evriwan long kongregeson.

Hem minim feeling bilong pipol wea no strong and wikdaon olsem longfala grass wea bend and lamp wea klosap for dae. Dastawe, hem kaen, tingim, and patient witim pipol.

Distaem staka million pipol “garekil and stap olobaot” bikos long wei wea olketa bisnis, bigman long gavman, and bigman long religion no tingim and ravem olketa.

Tru nao, staka pipol acceptim message wea iumi talemaot no bikos long savve bilong iumi abaotem Bible, or wei wea iumi savve explainim gud nomoa, bat bikos long wei wea iumi respectim and barava interest long olketa.

Wanfala pioneer wea serve long territory wea wei bilong pipol hem for shame and no talemaot tingting bilong olketa, hem lane for no askem kwestin long wei wea maet mekem olketa feel nogud. Insaed diswan hem olketa kwestin wea maet pipol no savve long ansa bilong hem or maet isi for olketa ansarem rong. Olsem example, hem no ask olsem, ‘Waswe, iu savve long nem bilong God?’ or ‘Iu savve wanem nao Kingdom bilong God?’ Bat hem ask olsem, “Mi lanem long Bible, God hem garem nem. Waswe, mi savve showim long iu?” Hem tru, iumi no needim olketa rul bikos culture and wei bilong pipol hem no semsem. Bat, iumi shud evritaem kaen, tingim, and respectim olketa. Diswan minim iumi need for savve gud long pipol long territory bilong iumi.

Dastawe hem important for iumi go long taem wea maet pipol willing for story! (Matt. 7:12) Olsem example, long olketa weekend, waswe pipol long territory bilong iu savve wekap leit long morning? Sapos olsem, maet iu savve duim firstaem street witnessing, pablik witnessing, or olketa return visit bilong iu.

17 Hao long nao iumi shud story witim pipol? Staka pipol barava busy, so maet hem gud for iumi story for lelebet taem nomoa, winim wei for stap longtaem long haos bilong pipol.

Tru nao, iumi shud showimaot olketa wei bilong holy spirit bilong God taem iumi duim ministry. Taem iumi duim olsem, iumi “waka tugeta witim God.” Jehovah maet iusim iumi for helpem samwan for lane abaotem truth.—1 Cor. 3:6, 7, 9.
