 12 Kusalala mumiyeeyo. Nzituyeeya nzizyo nzituchita. Ikuti miyeeyo mibi yakkalilila mumiyeeyo yesu, tulakonzya kuchita zintu zibi. (Matayo 5:28; 15:18-20) Pesi kuti twakkala katuyeeya zintu zili kabotu, tulakonzya kuchita zintu zili kabotu chiindi choonse. (Bala BaFilipi 4:8.) Kujana twakkala biyeni katusalala mumiyeeyo? Kwiinda mukutantamuka kufumbwa zyakulikondelezya zikonzya kunyongania miyeeyo yesu. * Kuyungizya waawo, tulakonzya kubaa miyeeyo iili kabotu kwiinda mukubala Jwi lyaLeza chiindi choonse.—Intembauzyo 19:8, 9.

Busanambi buswaanizya kusamba kumaboko katubelesya nsipa chiindi nituyanda kulya naa kujata chakulya, nitwazwaa kubelesya chimbuzi, nitwazwaa kuchincha mwana tebela naa kusanzya mwana. Kusamba maboko katubelesya maanzi ansipa kulakonzya kutukwabilila kumalwazi alimwi kulakonzya kubamba buumi bwesu.  Alubo, zilakonzya kutukwabilila kuti tutatabukilwi tuzunda naa tuuka tweeta malwazi amwida. Munyika kuli maanda atakwe zimbuzi, doti lilakonzya kusyidilwa munyika mbuli mbukwakali kuchitwa kuchiindi chamaIsrayeli.—Deuteronomo 23:12, 13.

16 Tweelede kukkala katuwacha zigogo zyesu kuti ziboneke munzila iilikabotu. Tazyaambi kuti maKristu ayelede kuzwaata zigogo zidula naa zili mufashoni, pesi zyeelede kuboneka kabotu, kazitakwe doti alimwi kazilaa bulemu. (Bala 1 Timoteo 2:9, 10.)

17. Nkamboonzi myuunzi yesu azintu nzitubelesya nozyeelede kusalala akuboneka kabotu?

17 Muunzi wesu azintu nzitulaazyo. Muunzi wesu ulakonzya kuti tugambyi pe, pesi weelede kukkala kuusalala alimwi kuboneka kabotu kweendelanaa zyiimo zyesu.

Kusalala kumubili kuswaanizya kusamba mibili yesu akusalazya mpotukkala

KULISALAZYA KUMICHITO IISOFWAAZYA

19. Niinzi nzitweelede kutantamuka kuti tukkale katusalala kumubili, alimwi Bbayibbele litugwasya biyeni mukaambo aaka?

Bbayibbele talikwe mundando wamichito yoonse isesemya iliwo mazubaano, pesi lilamalayilile atondeezya mbwalimvwa Jehova atalaa michito eeyi. Akaambo kakuti tulizi kuti Leza ulimvwa biyeni kujatikizya zintu eezi, kumuyanda kuyopa kuti tuchite zintu zimubotezya. Atulange-lange njiisyo zili musanu zizwa mumagwalo.

20, 21. Njiili michito mibi Jehova njayanda kuti twiitantamuke, alimwi nkaakali kaambo kapa kuti tuchite oobo?

20 “Mbuli mbutujisi zisyomezyo ezi, atulisonzole busofwaazi boonse nibuba bwamubili nibuba bwamoyo, atulondole busalazi bwesu cakuyooowa Leza.” (2 BaKorinto 7:1) Jehova uyanda kuti tutantamuke michito iikonzya kusofwaazya mibili yesu, myoyo yesu na miyeeyo yesu. Tweelede kutantamuka ziyanza zyakubelesya misamu iikola iikonzya kunyongania buumi bwesu amiyeeyo yesu.

21 Bbayibbele litwaambila kaambo kapati kapa kuti ‘tulisonzole kubusofwaazi boonse.’ Bona kuti lugwalo lwa 2 BaKorinto 7:1 lutalikaa majwi aakuti: “Mbuli mbutujisi zisyomezyo ezi.” Nziizili zisyomezyo eezyo? Mbuli mbukwaambwa mumavesi alaajulu, Jehova usyomezya kuti: “Nenzoomutambula, nzomubeda mbuli Usowanu.” (2 BaKorinto 6:17, 18) Kochiyeeya buyo: Jehova usyomezya kukukwabilila akukuyanda mbuli mbwachita wisi kumwanaakwe. Pesi Jehova uyoozuzikizya zisyomezyo eezi kuti watantamuka zintu  zikonzya kusofwaazya ‘mubili nikuba moyo.’ Mbufuba-fuba kuzumizya michito iisesemya kuti imane buzolwani buyandikana mbotulabo aJehova!

22-25. Ngaali malayilile aazwa muBbayibbele aakonzya kutugwasya kuti tutantamuke michito mibi?

22 Yanda Leza Jehova wako amoyo wako woonse, amoya wako woonse, amumiyeeyo yako yoonse.” (Matayo 22:37) Jesu wakaamba kuti ooyu ngunguwo mulawu mupati kwiinda yoonse. (Matayo 22:38) Nchachoonzyo kuti tweelede kumuyanda munzila iili boobu Jehova. Kuti tumuyande amoyo wesu woonse, amoya wesu woonse amiyeeyo yesu yoonse, tweelede kutantamuka michito ikonzya kufwinsya buumi bwesu naa ikonzya kupa kuti tutayeeyi kabotu.

23 “Nkaambo [Jehova] ngonguwe mwini nguubapa boonse buumi, amuuya, azintu zyoonse.” (Incito 17:24, 25) Buumi nchipo chizwa kuli Leza. Tulamuyanda Sikutupa chipo eecho, nkinkaako tweelede kuchilemeka. Tutantamuka kufwumbwa ziyanza zikonzya kusofwaazya mibili yesu akaambo kakuti tulizi kuti michito iili boobu itondeezya kutalemeka chipo chabuumi.—Intembauzyo 36:9.

24 “Yanda mweenzinyoko mbuli mboliyanda omwini.” (Matayo 22:39) Chiindi chiingi, michito mibi tiinyonganyi sikwiiichita luzutu pesi abaabo balaa fwiifwi anguwe. Muchikozyano, busi bugwisigwaa sikufwepa bulakonzya kuchisya batafwepi. Muntu uuchisya bantu balaa fwiifwi anguwe utyola mulawu waLeza wakuyanda mweenzinyina. Alubo unooli ulikubeja kuti kati ulamuyanda Leza.—1 Johane 4:20, 21.

25 “Kobayeezya kuti kabanga kabalitesya kubabetesi akubami, kabacita coonse ncobaambilwa kulimbabo.” (Tito 3:1) Munyika zyiingi, kubaa misamu iikola naa kwiibelesya nkutyola mulawu. Mbutuli maKristu aachoonzyo, tatukwe alimwi tatubelesi misamu iikola iitazumizigwi amulawu.—BaRoma 13:1.

26. (a) Niinzi nzitweelede kuchita kuti tukkale katuli muluyando lwaLeza? (b) Nkamboonzi kukkala katusalala mumeso aaLeza nikuyandikana loko mubuumi?

 26 Kuti tukkale katuli muluyando lwaLeza, tweelede kukkala katusalala kutali muchintu chimwi pesi muzintu zyoonse nzituchita.
