Jesus sei: “No tingse mi kam for mekem evriwan long earth stap long peace. Mi kam for mekem pipol no stap gud tugeta. Mi kam for mekem son hem againstim dadi bilong hem, dota hem againstim mami bilong hem, and dota-in-law hem againstim mami-in-law bilong hem.

4 Jesus laekem pipol for savve long samting wea bae happen sapos olketa kamap disaepol bilong hem, dastawe hem sei: “No tingse mi kam for mekem evriwan long earth stap long peace.” Really goal bilong Jesus hem for teachim truth abaotem God long pipol and no for mekem famili divaed.

Bat iumi mas tingim hao love bilong iumi for God and Christ mas strong winim love wea iumi garem for eniwan.

Taem iumi duim olsem, diswan savve helpem iumi teachim truth long olketa relative.—1 Cor. 9:19-23.

Sapos iumi feel nogud long samting wea olketa talem or duim long iumi, iumi savve followim example bilong olketa aposol. Paul sei: “Taem pipol tok spoelem mifala, mifala askem God for blessim olketa.

(Prov. 12:16, 23) Hem nao samting wea wanfala sista long Australia hem duim. Dadi-in-law bilong hem barava againstim truth and samfala taem hem savve kros. So taem hem  and hasband redi for ringim hem, tufala savve prea for Jehovah helpem tufala for story kaen long hem. Tufala ting raonem firstaem olketa story wea bae mekem olketa no argue.
