Maet iu tu feel olsem taem iu tingim evri wei for safa wea kamaot from samting wea Satan duim. Bat Jehovah no kwiktaem finisim hem. Samting wea Jehovah duim hem barava fitim. Jehovah no kros kwiktaem and hem deal witim Satan long wei wea followim justice bilong Hem. (Ex. 34:6; Job 2:2-6) Why nao hem duim datwan? Jehovah givim taem bikos hem no laekem eniwan for dae bat “hem laekem evriwan for garem chance for repent.”—2 Pet. 3:9.

8 Bible storyim staka example wea showimaot hem important for garem wei for kontrolem seleva. Wanfala example hem Joseph, son bilong Jacob. Hem kasem test taem hem waka long haos bilong Potiphar, wea hem bigman bilong olketa security bilong Pharaoh. Waef bilong Potiphar lukim Joseph hem “strong and luk naes,” so staka taem hem trae for switim hem. Bat Joseph rejectim datwan. Wanem nao helpem  Joseph for no foldaon long datfala test?

(Ps. 26:4, 5; Prov. 22:3) Sapos enitaem iu feisim eni test olsem, askem Jehovah for givim iu wisdom and for helpem iu kontrolem iuseleva.

10, 11. (a) Wanem nao staka young wan feisim long skul? (b) Wanem nao savve helpem olketa young wan for rejectim olketa samting wea Jehovah no laekem?

Iumi tinghae long olketa young wan bilong iumi wea disaed strong for rejectim wei wea olketa narawan switim olketa for durong, and Jehovah tu barava tinghae long olketa!

Sapos iu feisim semkaen samting wea kasem Kim, ting raonem story bilong krangge young man wea Proverbs chapter 7 storyim. Tingim tu example bilong Amnon and nogud samting wea kamaot from wanem hem duim.

12. (a) Hao nao Joseph kontrolem feeling bilong hem taem hem story long olketa brata bilong hem? (b) Long olketa wanem taem nao iumi mas kontrolem feeling bilong iumi?

12 Joseph showimaot nara gudfala example long wei for kontrolem seleva. Diswan kamap taem olketa brata bilong hem kam long Egypt for baem kaikai. For savve long really tingting bilong olketa brata bilong hem, hem no kwiktaem talem hao hem nao Joseph. Gogo taem Joseph no savve holem bak feeling bilong hem, hem go from olketa, and krae long ples wea no eniwan savve lukim hem. (Gen. 43:30, 31) Sapos wanfala brata or sista duim samting wea mekem iu feel nogud, followim example bilong Joseph for kontrolem iuseleva for no talem or duim eni samting wea iu maet sorre long hem bihaen.  (Prov. 16:32; 17:27) Maet iu garem olketa relative wea disfellowship.

Bat hem bae isi for iumi kontrolem iumiseleva sapos iumi tingim hao samting wea iumi duim hem followim example bilong Jehovah and iumi obeyim olketa law bilong hem.

Mek-tu samting, no eniwan shud tingse hem strong and hard for hem foldaon long eni test.—1 Cor. 10:12.
