1. (a) Mutongi Jefta naHana vakanga vakafanana papi? (Ona mifananidzo iri panotangira nyaya ino.) (b) Mibvunzo ipi ichapindurwa munyaya ino?

JEFTA aiva mutungamiriri akashinga; Hana aiva mudzimai aizviisa pasi pemurume wake. Jefta aiva murwi asingatyi; Hana aiva mudzimai aizvininipisa uye aigona kuchengeta musha wake nemhuri yake. Kunze kwekunamata Mwari mumwe chete, ndezvipi zvimwe zvainge zvakafanana pana Mutongi Jefta naHana, mudzimai waErikana? Vese vakaita mhiko kuna Mwari, uye vakaripa mhiko dzavakaita kwaari.

2 MuBhaibheri, mhiko ivimbiso inokosha inoitwa kuna Mwari. Munhu anogona kuvimbisa kuita chimwe chinhu, kupa chipo, kuitira Jehovha rimwe basa, kana kurega zvimwe zvinhu.

Anofanira kuita maererano nezvose zvakabuda mumuromo make.” (Num. 30:2) Soromoni akazofemerwa kunyora kuti: “Pose paunopika mhiko kuna Mwari, usanonoka kuiripa, nokuti haafariri mapenzi. Ripa zvaunopika.” (Mup. 5:4) Jesu akaratidzawo kuti kuita mhiko inyaya yakakura paakati: “Zvakanzi kune vomunguva yekare, ‘Usapika usingaiti, asi uripe mhiko dzako kuna Jehovha.’”—Mat. 5:33.

4. (a) Kuita mhiko kuna Mwari inyaya yakakura zvakadini? (b) Tichadzidzei nezvaJefta naHana?

Dhavhidhi akanyora kuti: ‘Ndiani angakwira mugomo raJehovha, Uye ndiani angasimuka munzvimbo yake tsvene? Ani naani asina kupika zvenhema neupenyu Hwangu [Jehovha], kana kupika achinyengera.’ (Pis. 24:3, 4) Jefta naHana vakaita mhiko dzei, uye zvaiva nyore here kuti vadziripe?

5. Jefta akapika kutii, uye chii chakazoitika?

5 Jefta akachengeta vimbiso yaakaita kuna Mwari paakanga ava kuda kuenda kunorwisa vaAmoni, avo vaishungurudza vanhu vaMwari. (Vat. 10:7-9) Achida chaizvo kukunda, Jefta akapika kuti: “Chokwadi kana mukaisa vanakomana vaAmoni muruoko rwangu, munhu achabuda, anobuda mumasuo eimba yangu kuzondichingura pandinodzokera norugare ndichibva kuvanakomana vaAmoni, achavawo waJehovha.” Chii chakazoitika? VaAmoni vakakundwa, uye mwanasikana waJefta waaida ndiye akabuda kuzomuchingura paakadzoka. Ndiye ‘aizova waJehovha.’ (Vat. 11:30-34) Izvozvo zvaireva kuti aifanira kuzoita sei?

6. (a) Zvaiva nyore here kuti Jefta nemwanasikana wake varipe mhiko yaJefta? (b) Tinodzidzei nezvekuita mhiko pana Dheuteronomio 23:21, 23 uye Pisarema 15:4?

6 Kuti aripe mhiko yababa vake, mwanasikana waJefta aifanira kushumira Jehovha nguva yakazara patebhenekeri. Jefta akanga aita mhiko yacho asina kufunga here? Aiwa. Angangodaro ainyatsoziva kuti mwanasikana wake ndiye aigona kuzobuda kuti amuchingure. Kunyange zvakadaro, zvakanga zvakaomera baba nemwanasikana wavo kuti varipe mhiko yacho. Kwaitova kuzvipira chaiko. Paakaona mwanasikana wake, Jefta ‘akabvarura nguo dzake’ akataura mashoko anoratidza kuti akarwadziwa mumwoyo make. Mwanasikana wake ‘akasvimha misodzi nokuda kwoumhandara hwake.’ Nei akadaro? Jefta akanga asina mwanakomana uye mwanasikana wake mumwe chete aisazokwanisa kuroorwa omuberekera vazukuru. Pakanga pasina nzira yekuchengetedza nayo zita remhuri nenhaka yemhuri. Asi handizvo zvainyanya kukosha. Jefta akati: “Ndashama muromo wangu kuna Jehovha, uye handikwanisi kurega.” Uye mwanasikana wake akapindura kuti: “Ndiitirei maererano nezvabuda mumuromo menyu.” (Vat. 11:35-39) Jefta nemwanasikana wake vakanga vakavimbika zvekuti vaisazombofunga kuputsa mhiko yakanga yaitwa kuna Mwari Wokumusorosoro, pasinei nekuti zvaizovarwadza sei.—Verenga Dheuteronomio 23:21, 23; Pisarema 15:4.

7. (a) Hana akaita mhiko yei, akaiitirei uye zvakamufambira sei? (b) Mhiko yakaitwa naHana yaizoita kuti Samueri ave neupenyu hwakaita sei? (Ona mashoko emuzasi.)

7 Hana akaripawo mhiko yaakanga aita kuna Jehovha. Paakaita mhiko yake akanga achinetseka uye aitambudzika zvikuru nekuti akanga asina mbereko uye aigara achitsvinyirwa. (1 Sam. 1:4-7, 10, 16) Hana akaudza Jehovha zvaiva kutsi kwemwoyo wake  ndokupika kuti: “Haiwa Jehovha wemauto, chokwadi kana mukatarira kutambudzika kwomurandasikana wenyu, mukandiyeuka, mukasakanganwa murandasikana wenyu uye mukapa murandasikana wenyu mwana mukomana, ndichamupa Jehovha mazuva ose oupenyu hwake, uye musoro wake hauzoveurwi nechisvo.” * (1 Sam. 1:11) Munyengetero waHana wakapindurwa uye akabereka mwanakomana wake wedangwe. Hana akafara chaizvo. Asi haana kukanganwa mhiko yaakanga aita kuna Mwari. Paakabereka mwana wake mukomana, akati: “Ndakamukumbira kuna Jehovha.”​—1 Sam. 1:20.

8. (a) Zvaiva nyore here kuti Hana aripe mhiko yake? (b) Mashoko aDhavhidhi ari muPisarema 61 anokuyeuchidzei nezvemafungiro akanaka aiva naHana?

8 Samueri paakangorumurwa, zvichida aine makore matatu, Hana akaita zvaakanga apika kuna Mwari. Haana kana kumbofunga nezvekusaripa mhiko yake. Akaenda naSamueri kuna Eri, Mupristi Mukuru, kutebhenekeri yaiva muShiro ndokuti: “Ndakanyengetera pamusoro pomukomana uyu [uye Jehovha akandipa] chikumbiro changu chandakamukumbira. Iniwo, ndamupa Jehovha. Mazuva ose aanenge ari mupenyu, ndiye akakumbirirwa Jehovha.” (1 Sam. 1:24-28) Paakanga ari kuShiro, “mukomana wacho Samueri akaramba achikura Jehovha ainaye.” (1 Sam. 2:21) Zvaisava nyore kuti Hana aripe mhiko yake. Aida mwanakomana wake chaizvo, asi aisazokwanisa kuva naye zuva nezuva achiri mudiki. Funga kuti aisuwa sei kumumbundira, kutamba naye uye kumurera. Kunyange zvakadaro, haana kumbodemba kuripa kwaakaita mhiko yake kuna Mwari. Mwoyo wake waifara muna Jehovha.​—1 Sam. 2:1, 2; verenga Pisarema 61:1, 5, 8.

(Mat. 16:24) Kubvira musi iwoyo zvichienda mberi, ‘anenge ava waJehovha.’ (VaR. 14:8) Munhu wese anozvitsaurira anofanira kukoshesa mhiko yake sezvakaitwa nemunyori wemapisarema uyo akataura nezvemhiko dzaakanga aita kuna Mwari achiti: “Ndicharipa Jehovha nechii nokuda kwezvose zvaakandibatsira nazvo? Ndicharipa mhiko dzangu kuna Jehovha, chokwadi ndichazviita pamberi pevanhu vake vose.”​—Pis. 116:12, 14.

11. Pawakabhabhatidzwa chii chawakazivisa?

11 Wakatsaurira upenyu hwako kuna Jehovha ndokuratidza kuzvitsaurira ikoko nekubhabhatidzwa mumvura here? Kana wakadaro wakaita zvakanaka chaizvo.

Saka, tingazvibvunza kuti: ‘Ndafambira mberi zvakadini pakunamata kubva pandakabhabhatidzwa? Ndiri kuramba ndichishumira Jehovha nemwoyo wese here? (VaK. 3:23) Ndiri kunyengetera, kuverenga Shoko raMwari, kupinda misangano yeungano uye kuita ushumiri kakawanda sezvandinogona here? Ndava kuregeredza kuita zvinhu izvi here?’ Muapostora Petro akatsanangura kuti tinogona kudzivisa kuva vanhu vasingaiti basa kana tikaramba tichiwedzera zivo, kutsungirira uye kuzvipira kuna Mwari pakutenda kwedu.​—Verenga 2 Petro 1:5-8.

Kana munhu akaneta nekushumira Jehovha kana kuti nekurarama  semuKristu, haakwanisi kutaura kuti akanga asina kunyatsozvitsaurira uye kuti kubhabhatidzwa kwake kwakanga kusingashandi. * Pasinei nezvaangataura, paakabhabhatidzwa, aitozivisa vanhu vese kuti akazvitsaurira zvizere kuna Mwari.

MHIKO YAKO YEMUCHATO

Mhiko yemuchato (Ona ndima 14)

14. Ndeipi mhiko yechipiri inonyanya kukosha ingaitwa nemunhu uye nei?

14 Mhiko yechipiri inonyanya kukosha ingaitwa nemunhu imhiko yemuchato. Nemhaka yei? Nekuti wanano itsvene. Murume nemukadzi vanoita mhiko dzavo dzemuchato pamberi paMwari nezvapupu.

Pashure pekuita mhiko, vanonzi vava murume nemudzimai, uye vanofanira kuramba vachigara vese kweupenyu hwese. (Gen. 2:24; 1 VaK. 7:39) Jesu akati: “Naizvozvo ngaparege kuva nomunhu anoparadzanisa zvasungwa pamwe chete pajoko naMwari,” angava murume kana mudzimai wacho kana kuti mumwe munhuwo zvake. Saka vanhu vari kupinda muwanano havafaniri kufunga kuti kana vakasawirirana vanogona kungorambana.​—Mako 10:9.

Ndokusaka Bhaibheri richitaura kuti vakaroorana ‘vachava nedambudziko’ pane dzimwe nguva. (1 VaK. 7:28.) Zvinosuwisa kuti vakawanda munyika vanorerutsa wanano. Kana zvikanetsa mumba mavo, vanongokanda mapfumo pasi, vosiya wavakaroorana naye. Asi vaKristu havafaniri kuita zvakadaro. Kutadza kuripa mhiko yemuchato kwakafanana nekureva nhema pamberi paMwari, uye Mwari anovenga vanhu vanoreva nhema. (Revh. 19:12; Zvir. 6:16-19) Muapostora Pauro akanyora kuti: “Wakasunganidzwa nomudzimai here? Rega kutsvaka kusunungurwa.” (1 VaK. 7:27) Pauro aigona kudaro nekuti aiziva kuti Jehovha anovengawo kurambana kune unyengeri mukati.​—Mar. 2:13-16.

Bhaibheri haritauri kuti vanhu vanofanira kuparadzana kana zvaita sei. Zvisinei, mumwe muKristu anogona kuona zvakakodzera kuti aparadzane newaakaroorana naye kana upenyu hwake kana kuti ushamwari hwake naMwari  huri pangozi. Anogona kunge achirohwa zvakanyanya kana kuti achipikiswa nemumwe wake anenge akasiya kunamata. *

17. VaKristu vakaroorana vangaitei kuti wanano yavo igare kweupenyu hwese?

17 Kana vakaroorana vakaenda kuvakuru veungano vachitsvaga mazano ekugadzirisa matambudziko emuwanano yavo, vakuru vanofanira kuvabvunza kuti vakaona here vhidhiyo inonzi Chii Chinonzi Rudo Rwechokwadi? uye kuti vakadzidza here pamwe chete bhurocha rinonzi Mhuri Yenyu Inogona Kufara.
