Elder Perry, Ij ļōmņak kwe eo kodik tata 90 iiō dettan ilo aolepān Kabun̄ in. Kom̧ kar kile an kar kelōn̄ļo̧k jān jea eo an.

Honeybee ko ekajoor aer ikirelel n̄an kōm̧m̧an kōņ, kōm̧m̧an dān, im ukōt dān n̄an honey. Ej jerbal eo aer aiboojoj eo n̄an er ej juon men kar leļo̧k n̄an er jān Rikōm̧anm̧an eo.

Beehive eo elakkar iien otemjej juon kōkaļļe eaorōk n̄an bwebwenato an Kabun̄ in ad. Jej katak ilo Bok in Mormon bwe Rijared ro raar ebbōk honeybee ko ippāer (lale Ether 2:3) ke raar em̧m̧akūt n̄an America taujin iiō ko remootļo̧k.

Aolep kōkaļļe kein rej kam̧ool kōn juon m̧ool: men ko reļļap rej kwaļo̧k im kōmeraik eddo ko kōn kijejeto ko an elōn̄ armej reikijooror in bōk kuņaer ilo juon jerbal em̧m̧an (lale D&C 58:27). Pijaik m̧ōk ta eo milieņ Armej ro Rekwojarjar ilo Raan-ko Āliktata remaron̄ kōtōprake ilo laļ in eļan̄n̄e jej jerbal āinwōt beehive ilo ikirelel eo ad, kallim̧ūr eo kōm̧m̧ane n̄an katak ko an Irooj Jisōs Kraist.

Rilo̧mo̧o̧r eo eaar katakin bwe kien eo m̧oktata im eļap ej:

“Kwon yokwe Irooj am̧ Anij kōn aolepān buruwōm̧, im kōn aolepān am̧, im kōn aolepān am̧ ļōmņak otemjej.

“Im eo kein ka ruo āinwōt in, Kwon yokwe ri turum̧ im āinwōt kwe.

“Kien otemjej im ri kanaan rej keijel ilo kien kein ruo” (Matu 22:37, 39–40).

Naan ko an Rilo̧mo̧o̧r reļem waan, aaet meļeļe ko aer reļļap im m̧wilaļ. Jej aikuj iakwe Anij im n̄an iakwe im kea kōn ro ruturiid āinwōt kōj make.

Āinwōt Leta eo an Jemes ej kwaļo̧k, jerbal in jipan̄ ej meļeļe eo erreo an kabun̄ (lale James 1:27).

Jej riit kōn jerbal in jipan̄ an membōr ro an Kabun̄ in rej kōm̧m̧ani aolepān laļ in im eļaptata jerbal in jipan̄ an humanitrian ko kar liļo̧k ilo iien ko reppen—bwil ko, ibwijleplep ko, hurricane ko, aire ko. Jipan̄ kein ilo iien idin̄ ko remenin aikuj im ļap kam̧oolol kaki rej aikuj wōnm̧aanļo̧k wōt āinwōt juon wāween an jipan̄ eddo ko an ro jet. Ak ta kōn mour ko ad aolep raan?

Laļ in ad etarpok ej aikuj iakwe in an Kraist rainin eļapļo̧k jān m̧okta, im naaj aikuji eļapļo̧k ilo iiō ko im̧aan.

Jerbal in jipan̄ kein relemwaan, kajjojo raan remaron̄ jab āinwōt ļap im kōn er make, bōtaab n̄e ļōmņak kaki ippān doon rej erom āiwōt juon m̧ōttan jon̄oulruo tijibuun in honey eo leļo̧k jān juon bee n̄an hive eo. Ewōr kajoor ilo iakwe eo ad n̄an Anij im n̄an ro Nejin, im n̄e iakwe jab in kwaļo̧ke ilo juon wāween em̧ool kōn milieņ jerbal in jouj ko an Rikirijin, enaaj kōkōm̧anm̧anļo̧k im najdik laļ in kōn dān in tōmak eo ej kōjparok mour, kōjatdikdik, im iakwe an Kraist.

Ta eo jej aikuj n̄an kōm̧m̧ane n̄an erom āinwōt honeybee ko rōkūtarre im wōr kije eo bwe en erom juon m̧ōttan paotok eo ad? Elōn̄ iaad rej kije ilo pād ilo kweilo̧k ko an Kabun̄ in ad, im jej buuļ jerbal ilo kūr ko ad, eļaptata ilo Jabōt ko. Em̧ool ej juon men n̄an nōbare. Bōtaab ļōmņak ko ad im būruwōd rōkūjooror in bōk kuņaer ilo men ko rem̧m̧an ilo aolepān wiik eo? Jej ke jidik wōt ad kakūrm̧ool eddo ko ad ilo jab ļōmņak, ak jej ke m̧ool in oktak n̄an ko̧jpeļ eo an Jisōs Kraist?

Eaar, im iien eo wōt, me jej erom rikaļoor ro an Kraist relluukin m̧wilaļ kōkajoor e jān Jetōb eo n̄an tōpar bōro ko an ro m̧ōttad.
